Pleasures of Collaboration
What do nine poets, four dancers, and five musicians have in common?
“Pleasures of Collaboration” Poets, Dancers and Musicians at Play
Friday, June 17, 2011 7:30 p.m.
Takoma Park Auditorium, 7500 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park
Enjoy an evening of performance pieces that combine dance, music and spoken word—and join in the fun when the audience is invited to contribute to new work. Meet characters such as the wolf at the door, Jane Bowles, a gay fetus, a sea violet, and a green conflagration.
These experiments in collaboration were developed by a multi-talented group of artists from Maryland and Washington, DC, during Collaboration Laboratory, the culminating project of Anne Becker’s tenure as Takoma Park poet laureate. Over a 6 week period, these artists, including Karren Alenier, Jodi Beder, Rima Faber, Craig Flaherty, Greta Ehrig, Kate Jordan, James Landry, Hannah Leatherbury, Ashira Malka, Sydney March, Shakaya McFarland, Ken Moss, Orit Sherman, Rosanne Singer, Patrick Smith and Yermiyahu Ahron Taub, explored the layering of movement with the voices of humans and cello, keyboard, guitar, saxophone, flute
and percussion. For more information contact Anne Becker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
