30 Poems for Artists: Nicole Nigro, dancer and choreographer

Poetry

In the inspiring artist residency of Ponderosa, Germany, I wrote one poem for each fellow artist, curator and worker at the residency. The poems were then performed at a Poet’s Reception on 2nd October 2014.

Today, it is the turn of Nicole Nigro from Toronto, Canada. She is a dance artist, choreographer and educator who is interested in interdisciplinarity in her work. Her presence as a performer is both delicate and very intense.

Poem nr 2.

Nicole Nigro

The voice of yours?

Please, keep on talking

You’re like a good radio voice

to listen while you’re walking

And I tell you, if I was a guy

those eyes would make me shy

so you can walk past me

whenever you want

‘cause you look like a letter

written with a script font

30 Poems for Artists: Akseli Aittomäki

Poetry

In the inspiring artist residency of Ponderosa, Germany, I wrote one poem for each fellow artist, curator and worker at the residency. The poems were then performed at a Poet’s Reception on 2nd October 2014.

Today, it is the turn of Akseli Aittomäki from Helsinki, Finland. He is a dance artist and researcher who has a wonderful philosophical approach to his work. Akseli makes dance films and appeared in Ponderosa as a very witty, humorous and thoughtful performer.

Poem nr 1.

Akseli Aittomäki

I like to hand-dance with you.

I bet there is a lot more to do.

If everybody had that spark of yours

There wouldn’t be rains,

There would be pours.
