Many thanks to Karen Penley for inviting me to read at her series, “Retard: The Church Show” last Friday, Dec. 14th. I was inspired by the amazing movement and music artists to try out a new performative poem based on the I Ching. This included a Buddha Box, an old almond cookie tin, three I Ching Coins, and many layers being revealed. What kind of layers? I’ll leave that to your imagination. Or perhaps I can perform it again sometime!
So if you’re looking for something fresh and different, check out Karen’s new series of performances and readings, making a new home in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland starting January 6th, 2013. Happy Holidays, Everyone!
Following on the heels of my Lion House reading, I found this cool clip of Michael McClure reciting his “beast language” to the lions at the old Lion House at the SF Zoo. Thanks to Jillian Rose for reminding me about it!
