30 Poems for Artists: Christopher Owen

Live Art, Poetry, Yleinen

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
