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.
Here’s the poem for Tara Rynders, an astonishingly beautiful choreographer, dancer, performer and overall artist who engages the audience into private, personal, beautiful encounters with the performers in her works. She is the artistic director of You&Me, and she worked in Ponderosa together with a skillful artist crew, leaving no one cold after the showings. The collaboration gave the work a lot of warmth and spirit.
Someone might have taken a ladder
climbing up on the sky
Taken down a pair of stars
to be framed by your hair
And as they shine on your face
you dance on, like it was a race
You know there’s beauty around
– that’s what you’re speaking out loud
