What is “poetry that glitters”?
As a performance poet, I produce “poetry that glitters”. This is my slogan, describing the style of my performance: I prefer to be taken to great shows. In reverse, I like to offer a taste of great entertainment to my audience when I am on stage with my poems. My recipients get something to see, to feel, and to listen to. Come see me and you can escape through my one-woman-show into fantastic worlds!
Performing for the city of Munich, May 2015
This unique flavor developed through a preference of the variety show look. It reflects in my choice of glittering clothes and props for the stage. It is my duty to protect the emotional element and to create something beautiful.
My poems are “poetry that glitters” even without the shiny wrapping paper; when read they twinkle as well. Allow “Meer-Maid“ to take you into realms of your own thoughts and feelings.
Performance Poetry for You
Along with performing, I love teaching. Thus, I teach workshops. They are beneficial for your voice, presence, and will give you more self-awareness. The goal is that all participants feel good about their voices. You will discover the full potential of your instrument. Maybe in real life, you need to hold a class-room presentation, host a radio show, or recite a poem on a holiday – whatever your public appearance might be, I will help prepare you for it. You will be given new inspiration for creative writing, or the push to start with it for the first time. Also, you can learn everything about performance poetry that you always wanted to know. Make this plunge into poetry a gift for yourself, or someone special!
I offer private sessions in person or via Skype. I look forward to being your teacher and mentor!
