Action Poetry is the term for the poetry that acquires a body, becomes image, movement, sound.
Different arts in an attempt of conversation.

The actress Marina Kalogirou, staying at home, "converses" with the poem "Happy End" from the poetry collection "Silences in a Gap" (Kastaniotis Publications) by Yannis Stavrianos.

A digital documentary dialogue between the poet and the actress Marina Kalogirou in these moments we stay at home. A conversation as a means of "liberty" and "meeting" between the two creators under the conditions of a physical and social constraint, such as the one we are experiencing now due to the pandemic.

Marina Kalogirou, using her interpretive means, sometimes manages with the voice and sometimes with the movement to converse both with the poem, giving sound and image to its lyrics, as well as with the poet himself and his existential quests, creating with her interpretation the necessary energy condition and atmosphere, where the bodily transcends the material and meets the intangible and respectively the intangible is realized.
