The Poetry in Motion Series is a series of works experimenting with spoken word poetry, movement, music and videography. The latest three in the series (on hope, on body image, and on love) were created with the intention of creating without a budget. So what could we come up with with just the tools we already have.. a phone, a space and an idea. The rest came down to collaboration and a whole heap of fun. I write about subject matters that I have experienced and are close to my heart and my only aim is to help people through identification and to make something cathartic out of my journey.
