Anne Waldman performs The Iovis Trilogy
This monumental feminist epic is the most recent of over 40 books of poetry by Anne Waldman, the New York School poet who has been a countercultural presence in Greenwich Village since the Beat Generation. The book consists of a single 1000-page-long poem that handles themes of political activism, friendship, motherhood, and Buddhist principles. The performance will include musical accompaniment by cellist Ha- Yang Kim and soundscapes by Waldman's son Ambrose Bye.
