• Poetry in Motion

    Posted 2011.07.02

    In association with Magma poetry magazine, matter 2 media has created Poetry in Motion for Ledbury Poetry Festival, 1-10 July 2011.

    The poetry turntable in the Market Theatre played poems by Simon Barraclough, Jacqueline Saphra and Tim Turnbull, who are reading at the Magma Roadshow, 2:45pm on 8 July at Burgage Hall; and by Magma’s Karen McCarthy Woolf, who is reading with Rowyda Amin, 2.15pm, 10 July, also at Burgage Hall.

    The poetry turntable also played clips of poet Jean Cocteau‘s films La Belle et la Bête and Le Sang d’un Poète.  Then there was the interactive Pool of Poets.  Who are they, and what were they staring at? 

    In addition to the poetry turntable, there were (are?!) poetry in motion signs around Ledbury where you can download poems over the course of the festival.  Each sign provides poems on a theme, and adds new poems every other day.  Visit magmapoetry.com/poetry-in-motion for their locations.  Each sign has a QR code, and a loctcha for those who don’t have a code reader.

    Poetry in Motion is powered by matter 2 media’s Krstl.
