The Last Poet

The Last Poet



About


A poet disappears abruptly, leaving his world haunted. This world has no fringe-its towers, minarets, tunnels and rooms lead one into the other endlessly. In there, we meet a weaver, a prosecutor, a daughter, a publisher, a bereaved student, and several more characters, all of whom tell us about the vanished poet and unravel the mystery behind his disappearance. In this maddening world of desire, rumour, and regret, the poet’s poems appear as phantom notes that speak truth to power, and we wonder: Can a poet change the world? Will they let him?

Like a flaneur gliding through a virtual-tentacular city, the audience navigates this world on internet-enabled devices. While watching the show, we might choose to step into a floating room, stay back and listen, or travel to another one. The Last Poet is an online interactive performance that brings together theatre, film, sound art, creative coding, and digital scenography.
