Klein New Orleans Festival (Utrecht)

Ike for IGK at the Klein New Orleans Festival in Utrecht, in May this year. Intermezzionary little performances of Green Creatures pieces. Thanks for the roaming freedom we received from the organization, to intervene poetically wherever we saw fit. Thanks to the friendly musicians for the rhythmic support to some of the intermezzos we provided. We remember a cello boss and a plastic bucket boss in the background at stage 2 on the Breedstraat. Thanks to Anahí Clemens (1) and Roel Determeijer (2-4) for the pictures. Thanks to the, shoot, I don’t know, one thousand, two thousand visitors of the festival. What a bleb-bweb, bevoovep blast!

IFIGK @ Breaking the Waves Festival

Exactly 15 minutes of fame for Ike for IG Karfield at the Breaking the Waves Festival in Bergen, The Netherlands. From 5.55 PM to 6.10 PM, on the literary/classical stage. Ike will be performing a selection of poems from the little red booklet ((green) CREATURES). For anyone who’s interested, you will recognize him by the wig spot and lengthy lashes as seen in his latest video, GAIA’S KINGDOM 3.0.

See you hardcore (Holland-based) fans out there coming Saturday. For everyone else: we’ll have pictures and vids, so don’t worry.

This poem was recently released by us on the “(green) CREATURES” blog as a SNEAK PEEK special into the little red booklet. It features a baby sea horse that is growing up to be the harmless yet magical creature that it is.


Campus hippo

See horse
Sea monster
See forces
Sea wonders
If larva will change
Its shape along the road
Grow teeth ten sizes
Bigger than its nose

Go deep inside
The ocean and glow
Spark beef with sharks
Where the water doesn’t flow

See horse
Sea monster
Seek more
See larvae
Not fierce-looking beasts
Eating animal testers –
Those human freak hunters Leave your beauty to fester

See not conquering king crabs
But fair court jesters
Tiny, mystical creatures
From much larger ancestors

Sea horse
See wonder
