POETRY IN MOTION (article first published : 2005-05-24)

Early this month the talented drama students of the Durban Institute of Technology toured high schools with an upbeat programme of this year’s matriculation set poetry. Entitled Alive with Poetry, highlights of the show will be presented at the next gathering of the Live Poets’ Society.

This will take place at 18h00 on May 31 in the Quarterdeck at Point Yacht Club, off the Esplanade (opposite the Riviera Hotel).

Directed by Tina le Roux, the production is an energetic exploration of poetry through song, dance and of course the spoken word. Nothing is sacred in this exciting work which shifts outdated notions of poetry and opens up innovative ways of engaging with ideas through language.

“Our aim is not just to present poetry in motion, but to inject motion into poetry,” says Tina le Roux. “The works of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Keats, Eliot, Livingstone and Cummings, amongst others, are brought to life to learners and adults alike.”

In keeping with the title of the production, the meeting’s theme is “Alive!” Those with their own poems which could be linked to this subject are invited to present them. Then in the Poet Pourri session anyone may air their work on any subject they wish.

Entry is free and all are welcome, whether you write poetry or not. For more details contact Brett Beiles on 082 516 0517, 031 266 4762 (a/h) or e-mail thirdeye@3i.co.za
