mark & verse

16.09.2021
Opening of an exhibition showing the process of creating the films, presentation of the book/album ‘Brushstroke and verse - poetry in animation’ and flip-books of the films in the collection.

‘Mark and Verse’ is a project created from an idea of Vesela Dancheva and produced by Compote Collective. ‘Since the very beginning of the artistic platform Compote Collective, I wanted to create a series of short poetic films. I knew from my personal experience from making the film ‘Anna Blume’ that the connection ‘animation – poetry’ is both, challenging and inspiring. I wanted to share this experience with my colleagues from the Collective and to provoke them to find a poem that they would want to recreate in animation. This is how the project ‘Mark and Verse’ was born 8 years ago.”

After two successful editions, ‘Mark and Verse’ reached its end and the final collection will be shown for the first time in front audience together with the presentation of the book/album for the project. Series of events will follow: exhibitions, meeting-conversations (Q&As) with directors and poets, film showings, concerts, animation workshops for children, presentations of flip-books for the films in the collection, and more.
