When poetry meets theatre in the mind of Jason Christie, a smashing performance results! Then as the curtains close, Christie sneaks off the stage, through the scenery, and out into the wilds of the Internet — and straight into the footlights and teleprompters of human experience.

His avant-garde style challenges the status quo and questions what a poem may be. i-ROBOT Poetry by Jason Christie illuminates his highly intelligent, satirical and somewhat whimsical, alternative style.
