Poet unknown: invisibility is disruptive
Does anything – absolutely anything that is – go in poetry? This exactly covers the mind-set of the six poets who present the stage version of the poetry collection Controversiële diersoort. Poems of established authors are cut up and rearranged into unexpected new compositions. So whose work is actually being presented here? And how important is that anyway?
During Explore the North the poets Han van der Vegt, Monique Hendriks, Anne Broeksma, Alexis de Roode, Arnoud Rigter and sieger baljon crawl into each other’s skin, reciting everything but their own work. Thus creating a lovely ‘friction and gameplay packed’ anthology, which allows you to realise that you already knew all the answers to the above mentioned questions in the first place.
i long for a mistic ass hole with a scalpel
who the nice kids with their intelligent observations
& their intelligent intelligent observations & their recognisable
their recognisable intelligence observations god how they
caught life without getting their hands dirty
“Because anything goes in poetry, these collections of poems can be published which make Dr. Denker’s Christmas Crossword Puzzle look like child’s play.” - Leeuwarder Courant.
