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.
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.
