100 Thousand Poets for Change: Aerial Text Experiments

 

 

Time: Saturday, September 24 · 8:00pm – 11:00pm

Circus Warehouse presents 100 Thousand Poets for Change: Aerial Text Experiments, an evening of collaborations of poetry, aerial arts, music, and visual arts, on Saturday, September 24th.

100K Poets is the creation of my good friend and frequent co-editor/curator, Michael Rothenberg. Hundreds of other 100K events will be taking place all around the world that day (see link below for details about the event and its social agenda).

Though I could be wrong, I believe our event will be the only vertical presentation of poetry on the planet! Either way, it’s the next dimension in text, and I’m psyched to get poetry into the air!

All works will be collaborative, and all will involve text and movement. Participants will include Warehouse students, professional aerialists, musicians, visual artists, dancer/acrobats and, of course, poets. Since not all participants will be in NYC, ATE will include several long-distance collaborations.

We’re expecting eight to ten aerial text experiments, maybe five to ten minutes each in length, with “experiments” being the operative word: they won’t necessarily be finished works, we’ll just wait and see what happens.

Some of our participants have had a head start: Susan Brennan and Carey Hackett are in the early stages of working on their piece, and Francoise Voranger and Jillian St. Germain have just begun work with Abbie Winson. Liron Dan and Kelvin Daly already collaborate.

If you would like to participate or have someone you wish to work with, let me know ASAP at suzi@circuswarehouse.com. The more the merrier!
