Poetry in Motion

Burning Coal Theatre Company is on a virtual tour to schools this year with its powerful production, Poetry in Motion.  Hear our four-person, trained professional cast interpret some of the greatest poems ever written, from Walt Whitman to Maya Angelou, from Robert Frost to Bob Dylan.  As long as the pandemic lasts, the tour will be performed virtually with live talkback to follow.  In that format, we are able to book any date or dates throughout the year.  Once the pandemic passes, we will also be able to present the tour live at your school, during the month of March, 2022.

In the performance, you will hear our actors interpret the poetry of past and present generations and then talk about how that poetry speaks to them today.  The actors will talk about the different kinds of poetry, from the Elizabethan iambic pentameter to the Beat Poets’ free verse to the Hip Hop generation’s stylings.

Prospective Partners this year include Authoring Action (Winston-Salem) and the NC Poetry Society (Southern Pines).

Fee:  $1,000 OR $1,800 for two consecutive performances.
