Come One, Come All~
23 Rochester-area poets present work written over the past five months.
Five Gang Leaders started things off with a fresh poem, and members of
the chains each wrote a poem in response to the one immediately
preceding. What spark got passed through the chain? Where did it all
come out? (No actual chains will be harmed in the performance of this
project.) Show Length: 60 minutes Ticket Price: Free Genre: Spoken Word Ages: 17+ Show Dates: 4:00pm, Sat., Sept 21
This was a fabulous poetry project, conceived several years ago by Wanda Schubmehl with great success. This past summer,Wanda invited 23 poets to participate in a new chain gang project. An anthology has been produced, showcasing the poems (Foothills Publishing). They will be available for sale.
