The Iron Maiden. A Collection of Kicking Poetry

ByElena Skoko

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
"The Iron Maiden" is a collection of poems written and performed by Elena Skoko aka Sugar Babe between 2000 and 2007. Most of them were intended for the spoken word or multimedia projections, as part of her live performances (OphLove, Proleter-K, 2B1C) or of single and private acts. Passion, anger, revolt and vulnerability are ritualized through words that manifest themselves in different languages as Elena moves her life through countries, cultures and lovers. Her communist upbringing, dating back from the former Yugoslavia, reflects her vision of the world in form of a broken mirror. Her inability to fit in and merge with the commodified life makes her find her way as part of the European urban cultural proletariat and its communities, where she lives until she moves to Bali. But that's another story.
