Ruler of the Halifax spoken word stage, Word Iz Bond is celebrating 10 years of reigning over language, with a cool collaboration that brings in artists from other disciplines. The series, which will run from November to April as part of Speak!, the group’s monthly open mic night, kicks off Thursday, 8:30pm at The Company House.
Integral Accidents is the first collaboration, inspired by the writings of Paul Virilio, featuring poet Ardath Whynacht, visual artist Peter Dykhuis and filmmaker IzReal Jones. Whynacht describes it as a collision of poetry and moving images “that traces a single journey in a car and the multiple internal journeys that are sparked as car and driver speed along the coast.”
Poets, if you have an idea for a collaboration, submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, for a chance to perform it on stage in May 2011.
