Poetry Off the Page: An International Symposium at the University of Arizona Poetry Center

Friday, May 18, 2012 - 8:00am to Sunday, May 20, 2012 - 3:00pm
The University of Arizona Poetry Center 1508 E. Helen Street Additional Location: The Rogue Theater 300 E. University Blvd, Suite 150

The University of Arizona Poetry Center's third international symposium, Poetry Off the Page, promises to be "more visceral than conceptual" and will gather poets for whom the stage and all of its demands, such as voice, projection, sound effects, lighting, body movement, acting, props, and image, all help create new breadth for the poetic voice.

The symposium, which will take place from May 18 to May 20, 2012, will present the work of more than twenty writers, artists, thinkers, and performers who press into new territories in theater, song, film and video, dance, recitation, digital arts, sculpture, book arts and more. Many will be performing original never-seen-before work for the Poetry Center.
