Flash Mob for Poetry


Perhaps you've seen the Improv Everywhere "Food Court Musical" and thought to yourself, how cool is that? Can we do something like that here? Check out this video for how these spontaneous performances can surprise and delight.


Well, just in time for National Poetry Month (April), here's your chance to get involved in a poetry flash mob. Calling all with dramatic flair, a passion for poetry, and/or video skills [BYO camcorder], the mission is to make poetry happen, in sync, all over Colorado Springs.

We'll gather to assign groups and tasks on Saturday, April 10 at high noon. Come to the offices of COPPeR, the Cultural Office of the Pike's Peak Region. Missions will include visual and spoken performances of predetermined poems at prearranged places throughout the city. The hope is that we take Colorado Springs by surprise with poetry.

Examples of group missions include:
-holding posters along sidewalks and across parks, mapping out famous lines of poetry
-erupting in spontaneous choral recitations in grocery stores and shopping malls
-videotaping crowd responses and enjoyment of spontaneous poetry

Deployment of the missions happens on Saturday, April 17th. We want lots of footage so we can gather later to celebrate our success!

If you're interested, please come down to our office tomorrow and we'll be sure to post videos of the deployment after they happen.

Copper is a former community in Jackson County, Oregon, United States. Copper was located about a mile north of the Oregon-California border, near the mouth of Carberry Creek. Copper was named for the copper mining in the region, including at the Blue Ledge mine just over the state line in California.
