Stofsugersjongers is a collection of poetry, etches and music from Tsead Bruinja, Mirka Farabegoli en Femke IJlstra about leaving, coming back and grounding, back in the days versus now, about not wanting to go home and the love which suffers from not wanting to go home and the same love which eventually overcomes.
The project was entitled Stofsûgersjongers (Vacuum Cleaner Singers). The poem did not survive the selection, but the title was taken and on the advice of Bruinja, a collaboration was also sought with visual artist Mirka Farabegoli, who previously, following a workshop, invited him to write new work at her first exhibition “God Made Me Funky”.
So what started as an idea for a theater program became a book and an album ith poems, compositions, and etchings about coming home in the broadest sense of the word. Coming home in the present and the past and how possible and impossible that is.
