My practice-based PhD project entitled, "V Portraits - Toward a Realized Poetic Play" will define the 'poetic play', a hybrid form of performative text. This definition will evolve through employing the following methodological question: How can a dialogic practice-based investigation of the hybrid form of the poetic play through the five individual sense modalities assist in the aesthetic situating of, and subsequently the fully realized definition of, the poetic play? The poetic play is a relatively new form emerging largely in the latter half of the 20th Century out of an experimental tradition that has not been completely developed in discourse. This project will offer context and a definition of the poetic play and then apply a model of analysis to five pieces by different artists. For the practice-based portion, I will explore the methodological question through my original text and five performative realizations in a sequence entitled "Portraits". These original performative pieces will each emphasize one of the five senses in order to establish an aesthetic history of the form and expand the sphere of its performative capabilities through contemporary theory. Expressing the text through various senses and media, brings the poetic play forward into the current social and artistic dialogue.
