Poemes Visuals starts with an actor, the Poet; he brings on stage a suitcase full of foam rubber letters. He plays with the shapes and the sounds which their shapes suggest. He discovers that the letters can create poetry without the need for words. With songs and a guitar, he builds up a tender relationship with the letters. They come to life and create a world filled with characters, humour, movement and dramatic action, where it is shown that letters are not only used on paper and in computers but to create a delicate world of overwhelming simplicity. Manipulated with rods on a table, the letters are alive and, as the show progresses, they are transformed: the letter “I” becomes a boy who plays with the “E”, a dog; a “Y” and a “U” together form a dancer, and a simple “T” is a trampoline artist.
