Spoken word concert by the famous Austrian writer Robert Prosser and drummer Lan Štiker

In cooperation with the Austrian Embassy in Montenegro, in KIC “Budo Tomović”, on Thursday, May 16, a spoken word concert of the famous Austrian writer Robert Prosser and drummer Lan Štiker, a duo known as Drumbadur, will be organized. The program will be held in the DODEST hall starting at 8 p.m. The performance of Robert Prosser on the microphone and Lan Štiker on the drums is called “Lost in Avalanches”, after Prosser’s novel of the same name, on which it is based. It is about an excellent combination of literature and music, which in the last year caused great attention of the audience in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. For the needs of non-German speaking audiences, the text has been translated and subtitled. As a group, DRUMBADUR is known for pursuing a radical form of storytelling. Through spoken word and rhythms, equally funky and solid energy is delivered, reduced to the greatest freedom for rhythm and voice. Whether it’s improvisation or dance rhythm, special attractiveness happens in direct contact with the audience. Without a single superfluous word or beat, DRUMBADUR offers an extraordinary blend of music and literature, such as performance, ritual and recitation. Robert Prosser was born in 1983. He lives and works in Alpbach/Tyrol and in Vienna. He studied comparative literature and anthropology, traveled from Asia to Africa.
