WORDS LIVE 1
29.11.2008 8.30 pm De Player Tolhuisstraat 107 Katendrecht Rotterdam (Metrostation Rijnhaven)

Three performance nights about the spoken word in different art disciplines, composed by Toine Horvers, Samuel Vriezen and Dante Boon and Cora Schmeiser.
A celebration of the oral tradition in the arts, in which the voices of poets, visual artists, musicians, choreographers, actors and storytellers meet.

The plan for WORDS LIVE came from the observation that in Poetry International Festival Rotterdam poetry performances and visual arts are kept strictly apart, and that especially language performances from other art disciplines are absent. In the visual arts, theatre, music as well as dance examples of the use of oral/vocal language abound. Language in a more or less composed form: sound, rythm and composition of words and sentences used in an imaginative way. Here, besides conveying information, language refers to itself, particularly, as a spatial and temporal process, thus referring very strongly to oral poetry. Words Live is a follow-up of Words 2, a video compilation of performances by artists from various disciplines in Sub Urban Video Lounge, curated by Toine Horvers and screened during Poetry International Festival Rotterdam 2008.

Words Live, a program in which the cluster language / voice / space / time / is highlighted is composed by Toine Horvers visual artist, Dante Boon composer/pianist, Samuel Vriezen composer/poet and Cora Schmeiser soprano singer/voice-performer.

De Player is an alternative club with an open mind towards performative arts.
De Players keeps itself fit by from time to time moving to another location.
