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.
Kaj-anne Pepper is a stunningly talented performer from Oregon, the USA. I had the chance to work with him in Ponderosa for two weeks, experimenting with ideas about creating a performance in a group of four artists. Working with Pepper was such a trip – he gave me a tour in the world of his work as a drag queen, and I hope I got the chance to give something in return. Pepper is a skillful, sensitive and multi-faceted artist, so please stay up to date about what he’s doing!
Your words are fast and your mind is curious
You seem colorful and furious
You do drag and fag and make it all up
by being as cute as an electric pup!
So please give me the lipstick now
so we can be sassy, and the crowd goes: WOW!
