poetry that glitters

About me

About me

Artist’s Statement

My name is Franziska Ruprecht, but you can also call me “Frances R”. Performance poetry is my passion. Since 2013, “poetry that glitters” is my slogan. I am proud to present my current projects to you: a book of English poems, “BODY TAG”, and poetry songs!
I studied Creative Writing for two years with poets in Detroit and have some roots in American Poetry Slam. In the Motor City, I also picked up the musicality and elements of rap. My poems and poetry song lyrics communicate a strong femininity and a particular playfulness with words. They can also be found in my German book “Meer-Maid” (published by Wolfbach).
My delivery on stage has a somatic quality and presence. I like to throw a pinch of glitter on my interdisciplinary approach.

In writing, performing, and my whole life it is my duty to create something beautiful and to protect the emotional element. I like to touch many people with this approach, inspiring them to reflect.
