Lokomotivám se motají kola, cyklisté sykli a sténají. Nechte se unést do světa vymyšleného jazyka a originálního žánru, který Petr Váša sám vymyslel.
Petr Váša is a physical poet. He himself invented this genre, in which literary, musical, motor and artistic inspiration is expressed by a single performer through the sole use of voice and body and, in some cases, a unique style of drawing. For more than 20 years he has been running courses and workshops of physical poetry as an original pedagogical method of self-discovery. The main inspirational sources of physical poetry include, besides everyday life, art history, religious studies, psychology and biology. He also works as a writer, composer, performer and graphic artist. From the age of 15 he has been participating in various music groups – composing music, writing lyrics, playing the guitar and singing. In 2000 he founded the Ty Syčáci band, with which he has created two albums of songs and two experimental operas. Occasionally he lectures at the Brno University of Technology’s Faculty of Fine Arts as well as at the Janáček Academy of Music and the Performing Arts.
