Your work moves in complementary fields; poetry, theatre, painting, posters, cinema, magic, musical actions, translations of Rimbaud... What exactly is the artist Joan Brossa’s profession? I’m essentially a poet. I work in different fields but my starting point is always poetry. All I do is move along different channels. Deciding which channel to use is an automatic, unconscious process. Sometimes I do literary poetry and at others I feel like doing visual poetry. When a poet has something to say, he can express it in different languages, but it will always be poetry. My theatre production, for instance, is performance poetry because it needs the fourth dimension of the theatre. Mine is not a declamatory theatre, or literary in the strict sense of the word. It is a theatre where the text has the same poetic importance as the tempo of the curtain going up and down or the colour of a ballerina’s leotard. Everything is closely related, like the lyrics and music in a song. Jané, Jordi: ‘Joan Brossa, un multiplista a Londres’, El Temps, no. 441, November 1992, pp. 47–48
