Degabay | The Poem is a visual interpretation of the creative processes of four Somali poets living in Cardiff, Wales. The work focuses on the intimacy and emotional experience while vocalizing the work. The work of a poet begins in the cosmos of their mind where thoughts mesh with experience and creative impulses. Imagined animations of vocalized words surround each poet with unique rhythms and flow while patterns act as tonal identities of the work. The collage of images represent the synaptic connectors pulsing their message out to the audience. These pules and words bind together to create The Poem. In the process, the poem and poet are created at once. This project is graciously supported by the National Theatre Wales & Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation
