Roeli Joosten, Amanda Joy and Maureen Sexton @ The Fringe Gallery 25th July
This month 25th July the Fringe Gallery is delighted to announce our guests are, poets Maureen Sexton and Amanda Joy and dancer Roeli Joosten .
Together they will present contemporary haiga and haiku with a buto/taboo performance.
The night will also have an open mic segment.
The information below gives a small descriptive glimpse into this fascinating mini universe of poetic style and performance.
Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry that is succinct, minimal and imaginative. It often has a seasonal reference and a ‘cutting word’. In English haiku the ideas can be expressed with a short line, a long line and another short line.
Haiga, in simple terms, is a haiku poem and its image or painting.
Buto/taboo performance contains the unexpected with no set style but always poignant. Buto appeared first in Japan after the second world war and was viewed as revolutionary and controversial in its form.
See you there
