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 performing artists interpret some of the greatest poems ever written, from Walt Whitman to Maya Angelou, from Robert Frost to Bob Dylan.  Because the tour will be performed virtually this year, we are able to book any date or dates throughout the year.

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.

NOTE:   Because of the pandemic, Burning Coal will be conducting its ‘Schools Tour’ virtually this year, including a filmed live performance of Poetry in Motion followed by a talkback with the cast and instructor AS WELL AS LIVE, if the pandemic clears and allows us to do so.

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

Fee:  $750
