performance (2018 - ongoing)FOUND POEMS is a situative format for different occasions.As a poetry service for audiences or visitors, I offer short readings off the beaten track: Using the language material from evening programs, artists biographies, invitation cards etc. as objet trouvès, that are literally deconstructed into bits and pieces and reassembled into miniature text-sculptures. FOUND POEMS offers a multitude of readings and takes place on obvious but unexpected places.With FOUND POEMS the periphery of "the event" turns into the centre stage and into a site of poetic interaction. The readings take place for audiences from one to six people. Who wants, gets invited to a beer. Often people stay longer or come back for a chat.
Found Poems was first performed at Impulstanz Festival 2018 in Vienna.Next version will take place at Sommerszene Festival 2019 in Salzburg.
