We're proud to announce that ECODEVIANCE by CAConrad, a series of (Soma)tic poetry rituals and resulting poems, is a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award in Gay Poetry. You can see the full list of finalists HERE.
ECODEVIANCE was also listed in Boston Globe's Best Poetry Books of 2014.
BOMB said of the book "The constant reverberations of collective and individual injury and suffering are openly registered in Conrad's work to memorable effect. Dedicated to his friends, ECODEVIANCE is kept from imploding on itself by love, camaraderie, and determination—a time capsule for the future wilderness and anyone who's being here now."
Join us for an afternoon of "performing" plays from Kenneth Koch's One Thousand Avant-Garde Plays (1988). Come to read a part or two--or just watch. Parts will be given out at the event. No costumes. No staging. No pressure. Free and open to the public.
"From hilarious and bizarre plays so short and minimalist they barely fill half a page to three-act mock epic extravaganzas, Koch’s wildly playful and imaginative plays experiment with the limits and promise of the theater and its first principles, raising an array of questions about the relationship between theater and poetry along the way."
