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.
Christopher Owen is a dancer with a great interest and love for music and rhythm. Other than dancing, he plays different instruments, creates new ones out of any object and makes songs. As a dancer, he appears very creative, playful and strong. In Ponderosa, I had the chance to play around with sound and music together with this multi-talented artist. Of course, dancing with this amazing talent was also sheer bliss.
Christopher is attending an artist residency in Dance4, Nottingham in January, 2015.
Play your notes on a row
and slide on them like a surfer.
Holding a guitar, yelling slightly
Put that smile of yours on just anything
and you’ll turn it to rubies, so lightly
‘Cause I think if you had any flaws
they’d be soft as a cat’s paws
