Unward we go!

The busy weeks prior to the ADE showcase are over and yes we had a mega blast! Poetronic is a fact. As Ci Seryne and I have set the tone we can’t wait to let you experience more of us. You can follow our journey if you link up at www.facebook.com/thatspoetronic.

Tic tac I won’t stop! I have joint ventures with Studio West, whoop whoop! As of this month I will be hosting their first spoken word course.
For six whole weeks you and I can be talking and writing poetry before we (read: you) hit the stage. Click here to register and I hope to see you in class.

Last but not least I realized I haven’t updated you about Talentlab! Two months ago I got involved in this project by Bijlmerpark theater. Coached by poet Babs Gons I have worked on a choreopoem together with 5 other poets. Visitors of Afrovibes were the first to have a peek at this collaboration. Dutch writer Christine Otten (known for her book about The Last Poets) had invited us to perform at her “We hadden liefde, We hadden wapens” book release. On the 10th of November we will be performing our choreopoem at request of I speak, a poetry event hosted by poet Gershwin Bonevacia.

It’s been a while!

I know, I know I’ve been silent for too long here. Silent though, never not busy.
‘The thing is’ is going places! Several events were happy to screen our short poetry film.
We kicked it off at the  Bliss Film Festival. It was SO awesome to see the film on a big screen. Ofcourse after Bliss we wanted more!

Our mini documentary travelled from a private screening of the project Veilige Haven to the Urban Rainbow festival in the Bijlmerparktheater, the COC’s Shakespeare Club at the Amsterdam Museum to the  Metro Movies Film Festival. Up next ‘The thing is’ will be screened at the International Queeer & Migrant Film Festival. Make sure to come along if you haven’t seen it yet. And after that? Who knows! World you ready?
