HOW DOES A POEM REMAIN A POEM IN MOVEMENT? (SCOTT)

Topic: How does a poem remain a poem in movement?
Topic champion: Scott
Those who assisted (in order of appearance): Manou, Billie, Antonio, Maria, Rob

 

Topics we spoke about:
-Words on paper versus words in space (memorisation vs page)
-Set words versus instantly composed words
-Improvisation vs instant composition vs live-editing

 

-A performance being contained by space and time

 

-A poem as a score for performance

 

-The ‘drama’ of words, poetry being performed by dancers, actors. Drama being something extra that can feel ‘put on’; are the words enough by themselves?

 

-Does a poet need to have the skill to be a good reader of his own work?

 

-Getting to ‘the truth’

 

-Everything has a structure

 

-Poem is alive… A poem is a life?

 

-To answer the question: How does a poem remain a poem in movement? It doesn’t! It becomes a ‘doem’.

 

 

Next steps:

-workshop with Billie (Scott)

-Making a performance
