Is it appropriate to go to an open mike poetry night and try to do an aggressive style of performance poetry, something that involved lots of movement or bombast?
I am wondering because I have an idea for a poem to accompany a performance, but I have never seen anything like it done at an open mike night which is probably the only place I could find a stage to do it.
Are there any poets out there? How would you feel if you were at a very chaste and respectful poetry reading and someone busted out a wild performance? Would this be exciting or just gimmicky?
