NIROX | Picnic Series:
The sculpture park opens for pre-booked picnics on selected days.
#3 Poetry & Jazz
NIROX Sculpture Park
Sunday 1 July

NIROX | Picnic #3 is a collaboration with poetry collective Hear My Voice with performing artists including Torsten 'Clear' Rybka, Mo'Afrika 'a Mokgathi & Them Cats, Flex of He & I and The Urban Village.

This event will attempt to re-marry the long lost, but not forgotten, bond between the intriguing world of jazz music and that of spoken word poetry. The will be a renewal of vows, delicately ringing in melodies and nature to create a perfect atmosphere for a picnic with family and friends. A select number of wordsmiths will perform spoken word poetry accompanied by their bands and the birds at NIROX. According to Barry Wellenstein; poetry has always craved the company of music. Tone, rhythm and cadence, and lyricism, too, are the property of both. It is the music inside the poet’s head that determines the meter and often the mood of the words as they fall on the page. One can’t help but remember the late laureate Prof Kgositsile Keorapetse’s many commemorations to jazz and its musicians. The anthology, To Breathe into Another Voice edited by Myesha Jenkins, is yet another reminder of the swing between jazz and poetry.
