A Renku is a Japanese form of poetry, comprised of linked verses of several authors.

The writing of a Renku is comparable to a group game: something existing is continued by someone else.

A poet writes down a verse, finding out later – to his amazement and probably also to his delight – that the team-mate continues the verse in a way, the first author did not expect.

Wouldn't this principal also be feasible for a ballet?
