About SMASH TYPE
SMASH TYPE is a living typewriter. Participants take on the role of letters of the alphabet, numbers, or punctuation marks and stamp their character onto huge sheets of paper using hand made hammers creating collaborative poetry letter by letter.
SMASH TYPE is constantly evolving, a work in progress, and can only exist with the willing participation of an audience.
SMASH TYPE strives to be both a vital work of contemporary performance as well as a powerful weapon for literacy education.
