“I’m bored. I’m bored.” The famous last words of poet Gabriele D’Annunzo will open the stage for another popular Speechkaraoke night at Lavaklubi, but it will certainly not become boring. The evening will be dedicated to “Last Words” and will feature many new, albeit short speeches. The shortest speech contains only 2 characters: ”NO.”

If you are curious to know what Socrates, Karl Marx, Beethoven, Princess Diana and many other famous people had to say in their final moments, join us! Thanks to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice a rather dark and moving collection of speeches were added as well, the last statements of some of the 542 executed offenders meticulously documented on the Department’s website. In their totality they constitute a powerful plea against the death penalty.

Against all odds Dj Nosfe wil l accompany the evening with some sweet, uplifting music.

4.5.2017, 20:00-24:00 Lavaklubi, Läntinen Teatterikuja 1, 00100 Helsinki
