Crossing Map

A special long-form broadcast for International Womens' Day of Crossing Map: an epic prose poem by Liliane Lijn. This radiophonic work, a Resonance commission for Derry-Londonderry City of Culture 2013, was composed by Liliane Lijn and Sharon Gal and recorded by Sarah Nicol at Resonance FM and Duncan Thornely at New Rose Studios. Supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. A visionary feminist monologue, as relevant today as when published, Crossing Map was written between 1968 and 1974 and was published in 1983 by Thames and Hudson Ltd, by arrangement with Editions Hansjörg Mayer, Stuttgart, with a grant from Arts Council England. In the book Lijn "questions the meaning of time, enters the web of her memory, and passing beyond the now, lands in a world bearing no trace of man’s presence. There she meets the Last Man and through a telepathic communion with him is witness to the death of her society and the dematerialisation of man."
