Rhymes and Rumours on Stage: An Evening of Staged Poetry
New England Regional Art Museum, Armidale - March 2007
Directed by Benjamin Thorn
In collaboration with Poetzinc
This is the third collaboration with Poetzinc that I have directed in three years. It is always fascinating to work with local writers and discover just what their interest and concerns are, and then work out how these can best be presented on stage. In some cases it is not what the writers expect!
The works involved range from two lines to about ten minutes and it has been interesting to see how they can be combined into a more or less coherent whole and make use of the particular talents of the performers.
This particular project has been tremendous since everyone involved has had a great deal of fun and rehearsals have been fantastically enjoyable. My heartfelt thanks to all the cast for making it so easy!
