Poetic Regime is simply poetry in which the text is mixed with melody and staged. Creative writers and poets at Poetic Regime perform stage actions with all needed instrumental accompaniment. This is often accompanied with drama scenes, dance scenes and overtones that could put the spoken word to a pause.
Poetic Regime is not and cannot be likened to poetry slam. Though this two might share some similarities because they are both poetry oriented programs and equally performed by poets and spoken word artists. Here are five interesting difference between the regular poetry slam and poetic regime.
Poetic regime is so called because of the intention of the show. Poetic regime is a course of therapy characterized by poetry but possessing unusual sensitivity and insight enabling the ability to picture things in a beautiful or romantic way.
Poetic regime is not just a poetry spoken word show as provided by poetry slam. Poetic regime encompasses other genres of literature such as rap, opera, play, dance, choreography among others.
Poetic regime unlike poetry slam brings the spirit of opera to play. Poetic regime provides vocal number (a soliloquy (monologue), a duet (dialogue), and trios typically dramatize the conflicted state of one of the participants); orchestra (playing classical music consisting of sections of string, woodwind, brass and drum); overtone (a musical signature of introduction to a poet, play or written work).
