Jo K SST8 Scratch Idea

24 Jan

Firstly thanks so much for giving me more time to do this given exam mayhem etc.

I irritatingly have several ideas

1. redevelopment of an existing poem – from perspective of a tomato that identifies itself as a vegetable despite being a fruit and the struggles this entails (comment on gender basically).

2. from a free write i did in a workshop – deconstructing concepts – will have different concepts represented by different vegetables e.g. ‘carrot of opportunity’ and deconstruct them. (this would definitely involve live vegetables on stage).

3. a poem about someone who gets so much pilled up inside them that they will eventually explode – this person is, naturally, a blender.

the first two would aim to be funny. the third would have a light edge but also quite grotesque. i’m planning to take myself to a coffee shop tomorrow to bash these all out and see what i come up with – will pick one and should get a draft up either tomorrow evening or monday.

thanks again for giving me more time and sorry i haven’t quite whittled it down yet
