Literary technique in which words or sentences can be rearranged to create a new text.


Word Collages

“Intro” In the first two variants, the aim of the game is to create a word collage, a poem or a situation with words from all the words. All words should be used. When it comes to repositioning and putting words together, new spaces open up to create unusual sentences. Lateral thinking playing within the limits. The emptiness and gap between words and sentences can develop their own expressiveness. You may suddenly notice that a new logic is emerging. The third variation is dedicated to the same principle only you use sentences, also known as the cut-up technique.

Inspirations and reflections:

  1. The observed joy in dealing with words and language in our Shakespeare and screenwriting courses for young people
  2. The realization that our playfulness can only come back to life by breaking through routines and taking on new challenges.
  3. The fascination for dreams and symbols, the encrypted language of which seems to be a combination of: everyday observations, disturbing experiences, ambivalent feelings, archetypal experiences and personal unconscious patterns.
