Did this poem at Nılufer Koleji, Bursa at the weekend – went down a storm.
This is a great performance poem, particulalry the chorus. On ‘boom boom boom boom’ you move your hips from side to side followed by outlining the shape of the boomerang with your two index fingers.Then you can look through binoculars to watch the boomerang fly out of sight. And then it’s back to more hip swiveling Shakira style for the final line of the chorus.
The rest of the poem also lends itself to some nice mimes. Outlining the trees, walking along the track, typing on a keyboard to order another off the internet. It’s also got a rappy rhythm that can be beat out on a tambourine or drum. The Çevre College conference in February is all about chants, performance and rhythm so we might just get the audience to ‘boom boom boom boom boomerang’. Who knows?
My Boom Boom Boomerang
I got a boomerang
So we went outback
