Visual Poems is a charming show, filling every corner of the stage with an unusual virtuosity, the result of many years of work. On stage
a series of simple letters come to life but thanks to great mastery and handling these convert gestures into verse and verse into emotion.
The show is inspired in the magic of the poems of Catalan poet Joan Brossa, borrowing from the magnetism of Brossa’s alphabet, a game
of letters with which the poet illustrates his visual poetics.
Visual Poems starts with musician-actor playing the role of a poet; he is carrying a suitcase full of letters made of foam and he starts to play
their sounds and shapes, discovering that the letters can be used to create poetry without the need to construct words. With his guitar
and songs, he establishes a warm relationship with the letters that come alive, creating a universe full of characters, choreographies,
humor, and drama to show that letters are not just for filling up papers and computers but rather that they can also create a sensitive
world of breathtaking simplicity. The letters, operated by sticks on a table, come alive and transform as the show moves forward: the E
becomes a dog that plays with a child, which is the I. A Y and a “U” create a rhythmic dance and a simple “T”, a trampolinist.
“Poemes Visuals”: a show for adults that fascinates even the youngest spectators.
