Energetics Poetics

Sun, 26 January 2014 // 06:00 PM
Bowery Poetry, 308 Bowery, NYC (map)

Energetics Poetic moderators will both read original work and elicit assistance from the audience as we visually post key words or concepts to the crowd. We will utilize tenets of improv comedy to capture concepts passed back to us via one of a few methods; 1) note cards, 2) yelled-out words/phrases, 3) randomized selection and co-incorporation. A poem will be composed of all or some of these elements and we will repeat the process as many times as the event allows. We will also incorporate a free-writing session based on a key word, concept, or short-form piece of media and then welcome audience members to come up and read some/all of their 'energetically composed insta-poems'.

With Poets: Kate Ann Heidelbach and Jen NW
