What We Do
Described as startling, arresting, and beautiful, Poetry in Motion is a unique performance collaboration that debuted in Vancouver to great acclaim from the Christian arts community. Carolyn Currey and Rachel Starr Thomson tell stories and present themes by juxtaposing two powerful art forms: ballet and the spoken word.
A typical Poetry in Motion performance is 10-25 minutes long and incorporates two to four songs, poems or narrations, and original choreography. Performances create a “sacred space” by inviting viewers and listeners into an arts experience that will uplift and challenge them. Poetry in Motion performances can be geared for secular or Christian audiences.
How This Works For You
Because a Poetry in Motion performance requires less space and time than a full-length ballet, this can be an excellent way to incorporate Soli Deo Gloria Ballet into an existing event or smaller performance space such as a coffeehouse, community concert, or festival.
We offer arts workshops for schools during a Poetry in Motion tour. Workshops may include any or all of the following: ballet technique, ballet history, choreography, fitness, creative writing, and anatomy. Choose one workshop or combine several to give your students the full arts experience
