30 Poems / 30 Videos

Ross Sutherland

Ross Sutherland is a writer and performance poet based in the UK. I met him at a poetry slam in Munich in 2003. Ross has advanced to be one of the most celebrated performance poets of the UK, and in his live shows he mixes the power and beauty of poetry with wit of stand up comedy and the possibilities digital and video arts in a rather spectacular way. Sutherland is a crucial part of the current UK avantgarde performance poetry scene, which is without doubt the most interesting and innovative place for spoken word theatre at the moment. In the month of April, Sutherland was the very first digital poet in residence at campus poetry school, creating 30 video poems, one each day.
