[ Geschichte[edit]>>

Poetry Slam is a contest in which poetry performs poetry spoken.] In 1984, Poetry Slam began the first contest in Chicago to bring poetry recitales from the academic world to a public at the time when the US writer Marc Smith began to experiment with open microphones for poetry reading by making them competiven.

1 ] The Poetry Slam appearances are assessed by a jury, usually five, and are usually picked from the public or sometimes assessed according to the resonance of the people. Today there are poetry slam contests in a number of different nations around the world. At a Poetry Slam, the listeners are appointed as judge for the performance by a presenter or moderator.

There are five referees in domestic slam, but smaller slam teams usually have three. Every magistrate assigns a musical composition to this verse after every verse has performed. Prior to the contest, the contestant will often use a "sacrificing" writer whom the magistrates will evaluate to validate their judgement.

One round of a slam is made up of appearances by all entitled writers. The majority of slam games last several laps, many of which include the removal of lower scored writers in consecutive heats. A knockout section could run 8-4-2; eight verses in the first round, four in the second and two in the last.

A few slam do not even kill writers. As a rule, the Green Mill is run with 6 sealers in the first round. In the end of the slam, the writer with the highest score wins. Boston Poetry Slam[8] goes a different way; it uses the 8-4-2 three-round section, but the verses go up against each other in separated fights within the round.

In slams, slam slogans, requisites, costumes as well as the use of sound are forbidden,[9] which are very different from their immediate forerunner, the poetry of performances. Founding the independent poetic performing arts movement, Hedwig Gorski regarded requisites, costume and musical performances as essentials for a full theatre event, while following Jerzy Grotowski's Poor Theatre by obliterating the boundaries between the actual character, the performer and the narrators in scriptwriting.

10 ] Other slam rule provides for a three-minute timeout (and a ten-second reprieve ) after which a poet's music can be donecked, depending on how long the verse has passed the timeout. However, many youthful hits allow the writers up to three and a half minute on-set.

At an " Open Slam ", the most frequent slam guy, the contest is open to all who want to participate in a contest, because the number of available places is limited. Only those who have been called on to participate in an invitational slam. A" themed slam " is one in which all productions must correspond to a certain topic, category or form.

Sometimes in thematic slam sessions, writers are permitted to violate "traditional" slam-rule. They sometimes allow the performing of a work by another writer (e.g. the "Dead poet slam", in which all works must have been written by a late poet). You can also allow changes to the costume or prop limitations (e.g. the triathlon strokes that allow a writer, performer and performer to enter the scene simultaneously), change the judges' structures (e.g. having a particular host judge) or change the timing limit (e.g. a "1-2-3" stroke with three laps of one min, two min or three min).

Even though slam themes may seem limited in the natural world, they are often used by slam organisers to encourage the involvement of certain and perhaps under-represented demographers (which varies from slam to slam), such as younger writers and womens. A number of writers are intimately linked to the singing styles of hip-hop and follow the traditions of double poetry, a rhythmical and politicised form part of the dark and, above all, Western Hindi world.

A number of writers use nothing but their words to produce a poetry, while others use the limits of the poetry formats, step dance or beat boxing or highly danced music. Crist O'Keefe Aptowicz, slam poet and writer of Words In Your Face: The New York City Poetry Slam, une visite guidée à travers les vingt ans du New York City Poetry Slam, a été interviewé dans einem im Best American Poetry Blogs zitiert :

A Poetry Slam's goal is to defy the authorities of anyone who demands total control over the value of literature. There is no writer beyond criticism, for everyone depends on the benevolence of the public. As only the best graded writers enter the finals of the evening, the format ensures that the public can select from whom they listen to more poetry.

In 1993, a National Poetry Slam in San Francisco, Canada-based Kedrick James, Alex Ferguson and John Sobol produced, published and disseminated an immediate broad page entitled Like Lambs to the Slammer, criticizing what they felt was the self-satisfaction, conformance and calculating, tear-raising endemicity of the poetry slam world.

King Missile's writer and vocalist, John S. Hall, has also long been a noisy adversary who deals with aspects such as his inherent competitiveness[23] and what he believes to be a missing variety of styles. He remembers his first slam at the New York City Poetry Slam: "....I used to hate him.

It made me really unpleasant and..... it was a lot like a game and I was interested in poetry because it was like the anti thesis of the game...... I seemed like a very macho-masculine kind of poetry and not at all what interested me.
