Saturday night in Connecticut

Featuring Mat Bevel, from the Surrealistic Pop Science Theatre in Tucson, AZ and the maestero of “a gizmotronic fanfare of spunk, funk and kinetic junk,” as well as rare video footage of Charles Olson, father of the Maximus Poems and the Black Mountain School, Harlem native and vocal deconstructor Latasha Natasha Diggs, a short film from Guggenheim Fellow and stereoscopic projectionist Zoe Beloff, and literary stylings from the translator of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Adam Golaski, Larissa Shmailo the 2009 New Century Music Award Winner for spoken word with jazz, electronica, and rock, web artist Steve Ersinghaus, PEN/Faulkner award winner and screenplay writer Sabina Murray and New London’s own native son, novelist and frequent contributor the New York Times, Rand Richards Cooper. I'm looking forward to an evening of literary alchemy and intermedia performance, organized by fellow CSU professor, Ravi Shankar. See you there.
