Money Is No Longer Available

Bukowski managed. Both selection and indifference. Not the money, neither love or booze. But in the end of the day – he managed somehow. And there was no need for him to «come marching home» — as he never swapapped – except in his literary pursuits. Well – and every so often …

«Kabaret Kosmos», the 2014 production of the NewOperaCO / Copenhagen. Join an intergalactic journey and meet the original who left the earth to look for something more. Here is an extract from Act II of the cabaret that is both entertaining and serious from Atalante 19th December 2014. Filmed by Beata Rydén.

The NewOperaCO’s upcoming new production «Speak out!» which premieres on November 20th 2017 — will raise the big questions:

  1. Let’s just say this poem made my month. Isn’t it just how it is? We manage.

    Also, yesterday I watched The Boat That Rocked (a.k.a. Pirate Radio) and I’m so glad I did. Such warmth I feel towards those times. I don’t think they will ever come back but something will have to.

    Thank you so much for the recommendation and this post.
