Poetry Exercises

How is it possible to relate to each other and to the world surrounding us by means of our language and by listening?

The poetry exercises focus on the forms of oral language for which there is no time in our everyday working life. Three performers face the difficult task of formulating their thoughts and experiences on stage, thereby revealing their vulnerability. By means of language, they examine their environment on the basis of its capacity to be perceived. In collaboration with a sound designer, they pursue the facets of language that go beyond the efficient transmission of information by developing playful language exercises and games.

They focus on language’s repetitions, melodies, rhythms, and the grain of the voice...
