Form as Performance

Sunday, Apr 21, 10:05am
Healing Arts Conference Room, Healing Center

Poem as circuit board, poem as honky-tonk, poem as theory: poets discuss the various forms imported into poems and the ways these forms activate certain performances of the texts and enact certain contents. Panelists explore methods of reading form, borrowing from such fields as dance to illuminate the tension between notation and performance. The writers on this panel make cases for the value of experiments in form and advocate for writing and reading practices that emphasize the form in performance.
