The performance by Duško Domanović and the band Hirurgija at the 19th Street Musicians Festival – Gradić Fest – will, for the first time, give us the opportunity to hear and see spoken word form at the festival.
It is a performance art based on reciting words – verses – aloud, in the form of a monologue; more precisely – it is a composed speech. Duško graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy and published a collection of poems called ‘Nedelja popodne’ (‘Sunday Afternoon’), which entered the shortlist for Branko Radičević Award for Poetic Achievement. He also writes short stories, as well as literary, art and music critiques. Duško has a rule he always abides by: write only about what you have experienced – so, his poetics is unpretentious and engaged.
