POEM was conceived as a triptych of three sections that are all interrelated. It is the culmination of a decades worth of ideas exploring different ways that movement creates a sense of visual traction with an audience. It is a work that Ketley feels particularly proud of both for its dynamism and overall symphonic cohesion. Since its inception it has been remounted on a number of organizations throughout the United States and was selected to go to the Kennedy Center twice in the same year to represent two different regions of the country for the American College Dance Festival.
