Poetry has always found a home onstage: not just in the sense that  iambic pentameter is without fail to be found in a Shakespeare play. Beyond this, the poetical finds another means of expression through visual and theatrical media. The dialogue in a play can be poetry; or indeed, a poem can find expression at an open mic night.


What this flimsy and uninspired introduction is trying to say is this: I really dig spoken poetry, and performance pieces which aim for the poetical. I’ve clumsily written a few farces, sketches and kitchen-sink dramas in my time, but I really do want to spend more time writing performance poetry.

Examples of this attempt at fusion (or is it fusion? are these ideas so distinct that they need to be “fused”?) can be found here.
