Embodied Poetics: Threads of Matrilineal Influence
In this performance poets invite and trace threads of enlivening female influence. Which artists provide roots, architectures and constellations? What are our animating elemental permissions? What is our artistic nourishment, in the form of tracing our resonant page mothers, sisters, and daughters? How is literary inheritance: garment, house, song, or breath? How do sound, presence, ritual and ethos translate into poetic aspirations of the present moment? In what ways is our work in correspondence with our most potentially transformative realities?
