Poetry+Motion explores the direct relationship between words and motion. It is an innovative collaboration between local dancers and local poets. Without music, dancers create and perform new pieces inspired by the poets' words and voices.
Poetry+Motion began with a performance in October 2010 as an experiment to see if poems could be translated into dance. In February of 2011, Poetry+Motion partnered with The Hansberry Project to present one hour of their two-hour program celebrating love in the African American community. The event, at ACT's Bullitt Cabaret, sold out. To view video from that performance go to http://vimeo.com/album/1611110.
We have presented three performances a year since. In the coming year we hope to bring our method to youth, retirees and people in crisis throughout our community.
