Project Main Details

Poetry In Water  
This is a poem that will be read by both a female and a male actor. I will later edit them and intertwine them. The project is for a small video/animation I want to make. I would like the text to be read softly and not be too rushed. Think of it as an internal monologue.

I'm a teacher with a tiny budget (sorry!) but I will send the talent the finished project once completed. I am hoping a friend of mine will do the sound design.

Script Details

***Sample script provided for auditions.  
we are running scared
always our story
we turn to sandy wastelands
washed away and smelling of sawdust
a single impression followed by a blackout
spreading itself thinly
over us
where oceans
roar their song behind bars

the weary giant that you are
with animal madness
approaching both sides
of the towering love-castle
we so conscientiously built
in the likes of a mousetrap

beyond the timeless windowsill
I lay
my arms folded
contradictions of a body gone mad
at best, loving gestures
in suspension
our lives filled with objects
of all sorts
mailboxes always empty
seashells, chains, wooden frames

your back is what I remember most
curved like a question mark
your eyes always looking elsewhere
far to the right
where cities are women-built

doors and windows intertwined
shutters inside out

when my doubt exhausts itself
you find between my lips
the soft secret
of the humpback whale
sea-wind and water
rushing into my eyes
my neck
that of a hollowed-out swan

I know now
It is the end
