Content wise, the framework is performing poetry.
The poem can be visual, spoken word, voice, sound, touch, movement, dance, etc.
Idea for now is to do something with how poetry can be performed.
As a reference this paragraph:
In Chapter 1 we briefly explored Percy Shelley’s A Defence of Poetry, a stirring text on the revolutionary value of poetry. Shelley argues that poetry is an event whose meaning is irreducibly to-come. What makes a poem a poem is that we don’t know what it means yet. Thus poets are “the hierophants of an unapprehended imagination, the mirrors of the gigantic shadows which futurity casts upon the present.”Poems are “timeless” insofar as they ontologically subtend time itself, opening up hitherto unknown possibilities of meaning and action.
