Unreal City 2: Athens

She smoothes her hair with automatic hand,
And puts a record on the gramophone.

Who are these hooded hordes swarming
Over endless plains, stumbling in cracked earth
Ringed by the flat horizon only
What is the city over the mountains
Cracks and reforms and bursts in the violet air
Falling towers
Jerusalem Athens Alexandria
Vienna London

Featuring a guest DJ from Athens, Unreal City 2: Athens will play on the record turntable music from Athens and Greece over the last 100 years. This performance evokes the line in the poem, And puts a record on the gramophone, and is the second of five performances that feature music with leitmotifs of one of the five cities featured in The Waste Land. All the performances will take place in St Clement Eastcheap which is the home of the Amos Trust, a creative human rights organisation committed to justice worldwide, building hope and bringing about positive change, especially in Palestine.
