17 – 19 August 2017 Poem Every Day

I am constructed from stories.  I’ll dig, and I’ll dig, and I’ll dig. Don’t settle for the first answer you find. Don’t hide your weirdness. Don’t let the surface settle. Take it, feel it, weigh it. Make sense of me. Let it be. Freedom. Let’s talk about anything | Except you & me okay

Canberra Youth Theatre’s Company Ensemble presents an arresting new work shaped by the poetry of Canberra poet, Joshua Bell. Using physical theatre and drawing on the practices of Pina Bausch, Omar Naharin and Bertolt Brecht the work will be highly theatricalised. Co-Directed by Tracy Bourne and Katie Cawthorne, the piece has been developed using the cast’s individual and ensemble responses to the poetry, focusing on the poem ‘Don’t hide your weirdness’.
