30 Poems for Artists: Frankie Snowdon

Live Art, Poetry

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.

This time we have Frankie Snowdon. Hey, this woman definitely deserves some attention! Not only because she is graceful, beautiful and intelligent, but also because she is a real artist. I had the ultimate honor to work with her in Ponderosa in fall 2014 for two enlightening weeks, and she gave me a possibility to learn a lot through observing her working methods and skills as a dancer. In our group of four, we developed a special relationship with one another, and I saw how wonderful it is when one gives all of her presence to the common process of creating a piece of art. It is not easy, girl! The world is yours!

Please see the page of her collective, 2nd Toe!

Curly, spicy, beautiful and strong

you’re a lady that can fly like ping-pong

The balls of your game are nice and pink

and you dance and you think,

you dance and think.
