03 Oct Poet’s Eye, Artist’s Voice
A multimedia event exploring war through visual images, poems and movement, developed in the “urban studio” that is Chicago.
My collaborators Scottie Kersta-Wilson (visual artist), Ginger Jensen (dancer), Cat Miller (dancer), Shira Tan (documentarian), and I (writer) will be performing. We will project Scottie’s images onto a big screen in one of the museum galleries while I read accompanying text. Ginger and Cat will dance to some of the images. Shira will provide assistance where needed.
