LANTERNS OF NEDZUBOOK PERFORMANCE
Comic artist Rui Tenreiro reads from his newest book Lanterns of Nedzu (2016) with music from Tiago Correia-Paulo. Lanterns of Nedzu is the story of how Efe’s face was mysteriously marked onto the shell of a crab called Asagwara, as told in flashback by the narrator Ozioma to his granddaughter Igwe.
«Nedzus Lykter» is its Norwegian title, and was published by Jippi Comics in 2016. The book is made in mind to be experienced in various ways, and this is the first time it is performed since its release. Bergen-based artist Amber Ablett joined Tenreiro in this reading performance.
