In Kapusta, Moure performs this silence on the page and aloud, writing “gesture” and “voice” to explore the relation between responsibility and place, body, memory, sorrow, and sonority. Here, poetry flourishes as a book “beyond the book,” in a space of performance that starts and stops time.
In Little Theatres, Erín Moure’s avatar Elisa Sampedrín first spoke about theatre

One of my aunts used to call me kapusta hallova - cabbage head! This poem-play-pollen is a very creative way of expressing the phenomenon of inter-generational grief of the holocaust. I would love to see this on stage! This book resonated with me - the unknowing blur between Ukranian and Polish is something that I have in my family too. So much other stuff going on in this play. Needs another re-read.

What a crazy, bizarre, beautiful book! 5 stars for originality, although at times I was lost.
