There’s a trailer available to view now from the Empire performance that happened last month at TOTAH. It’s still so weird to hear my own voice recorded back, but that’s me talking at the beginning and there’s a clip of Marine reading some of my work later in the video including one of my favorite lines, “I feel safer already.”
I was a bit too skittish to perform much in Empire, but I’m super-excited about part 2, Desire. I am very much looking forward to it.
Age of Aquarius focus is on the group. I guess that’s how I’m so lucky to find myself as part of this amazing collaboration happening with artist Kara Rooney, composer Fatrin Krajka, movers Dylan Crossman and Claude ‘CJ’ Johnson, and poets Marine Cornuet and Laura Henriksen.
But for What’s My Axis part 1: Empire
The first performance will be next month at TOTAH gallery in New York City.
I’m super-excited to go to Philadelphia later this month for PHILALALIA, Philly’s small press / handmade poetry and book arts festival.
PHILALALIA is a FREE three-day celebration that brings together poets, printmakers, book artists, paper-makers, comics poetry artists, publishers, & arts enthusiasts to showcase, perform, & sell their work. It’s taking place September 14-16, 2017 at Tyler School of Art & Temple Contemporary Gallery, 2001 N. 13th St., Philadelphia.
If you’re interested in getting involved behind the scenes and getting into the Marathon for FREE, consider volunteering two hours of your time to help to make the event happen. Email email@example.com for more information or to sign-up.
Thanks to the good people at Empire, I’ll be reading November 18th at 7:30 pm with Tyler Flynn Dorholt, Lawrence Kaplun and Yanyi Luo at Art Cafe + Bar, 886 Pacific Street in Brooklyn, NYC. Come join us.
I’ll be reading at Berl’s, 141 Front Street, Brooklyn, NY on November 4th at 7pm along with Chia-lun Chang, Ariel Goldberg, Anselm Berrigan and Rachel Levitsky to celebrate Krystal Languell’s new collection, Gray Market (1913 Press).
