What is Artiestencollectief JA!
The aim of the collective is to create a dynamic, interactive and electrifying combination of poetry, music and video on a professional level. While the music is entirely improvised and primarily meant to enhance the words of the poets, the poetry itself is a blend of sampled words and sentences and improvisation -sometimes with a strong tendency towards spoken word performance.
The video artists, meanwhile, add to and accompany this blend of poetical and musical imagery with a unique visual language, translating and sculpting what they hear and feel, and in turn injecting new imagery and unexpected points of view into the stream of events.
