As announced at the Perdu Amsterdam Symposium in April the radio opera What Happened / Plays with a libretto by Adam Frank adapted from Gertrude Stein’s first play What Happened and excerpts from her lecture Plays and with music composed by Samuel Vriezen had its world premiere in Paris on June 26th 2019. The performance was by Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman and Ensemble Dedalus. A full recording of the performance is now out on Soundcloud for all of us to enjoy!


As exact as a resemblance…

Inspired by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot‘s choreography, Tim Elfring – intern for the symposium arranged recently by the Gertrude Stein European Network in Amsterdam, and a Masters student in Literature Today at the Universiteit Utrecht – has composed a drums accompaniment to Stein’s recording of “If Told Him: A Completed Portrait of Picasso.” This is a whole new way of researching and thinking about modernist prosody.

Check out his fantastic performance via video.

The continuous reading of The Making of Americans

26/04/2019 § Leave a comment

Is it now for eight years that we in the Danish Gertrude Stein Society have been reading Stein’s infamous The Making of Americans? Something like it. We have done it in different ways. On April 11th we met five people around a table – Morten Søndergaard visiting from Italy, Adam Zdrodowski from Poland, along with Solveig Daugaard, Kamilla Löfström and Martin Glaz Serup from around the corner in Copenhagen – and simply started to read aloud. We started on the Martha Hersland-chapter, page 268 in the edition most of us use, and read and talked about a few happy pages. It’s the chapter that starts with I am writing for myself and strangers…

I am writing for myself and strangers. This is the only way that I can do it. Everybody is a real one to me, everybody is like some one else too to me. No one of them that I know can want to know it and so I write for myself and strangers.

Hilsen fra Paris

To af Steinselskabets medlemmer – Kamilla Löfström og Hanne Kvist – er lige nu i Paris, og har sendt hilsnen her hjem – med Gertrude i baggrunden på Père Lachaise-kirkegården.
