Skeeze, is a word used by James Joyce in Ulysses, meaning 'to ogle'.
The word has since developed more voyeuristic and sexual overtones. Skeeze is the starting point for this experimental poetry series, drawing attention to the voyeurism of the audience's gaze. Rather than focusing on the performers, Skeeze will turn the gaze towards the audience. The poetry at Skeeze will be both experimental and leaning towards the traditional. Poetry that crosses the boundary into live art and theatre. Poetry that uses visual as well as aural elements. Cut-up poetry or comic poetry that actively engages with the audience will be performed. Skeeze aims to challenge the audience’s preconceived idea about what poetry can be.
Skeeze is an experimental poetry series and takes place as part of TBG+S’s Studio 6 Open Programme. For more information on Studio 6 Open, please click here.
