ALIVE WITH POETRY (article first published : 2005-04-25)

Alive with Poetry is an energetic exploration of KZN grade 12 set poetry through song and dance, presented by DIT Drama students under the direction of Tina le Roux specifically for high school English learners.

“The aim of the production is to make poetry both accessible and engaging to high school learners. The works of Chaucer, TS Elliot, Murray, Shakespeare, Keats, Livingstone and Donne (amongst others) are tackled in a modern, fresh production that students will love,” says Tina.

Poetry’s universal nature is explored through rhythm and the voices of South Africa’s young adults in this educational and attractive production. Nothing is sacred – rap is interfused with Chaucer – in order to shift notions around poetry and open up new ways to explore language and ideas. Poetry must be alive and off the page – in performance – so that it may truly live and inspire a new generation.

Booking is open for this exciting touring production which is due to visit between May 3 and 6. Tickets R10 per student. For more information or to book, phone 031 204 2532 or 204 2194 during office hours.
