We are thrilled to be curating this event at LitCrawl in San Francisco this year.
Ex-verba means “from words” (we think. roughly). So for LitCrawl we dreamed up this one-of-a-kind show of non-poems made from poems.
Jorrit Poelen’s projections of distorted, noisy collages of animated images – MADE FROM LETTERS OF POEMS! – onto skin, screens, walls, and floors using “Pooks,” a custom-built visual instrument.
Live performances of songs from Pink Thunder, Michael Zapruder’s project of songs made from awesome poems by living American poets. EX-VERBA
Daniel Redman’s settings of Walt Whitman’s queer epic Leaves of Grass to song. EX-VERBA
Exray’s live performance, based on their multi-genre Exray’s XII project. EX-VERBA
See some Pink Thunder portmanteaus, interactive music player/visual art objects that play one of the Pink Thunder songs and disply an object conjured from the world of that poem. EX-VERBA
