“Our bodies are also occupied territories. Perhaps the ultimate goal of performance, especially if you are a woman, gay or a person ‘of color,’ is to decolonize our bodies and make these decolonizing mechanisms apparent to our audience in the hope that they will get inspired to do the same with their own.” -Guillermo Gómez-Peña

Staging Elizabeth Bishop’s Letters

Presented by the CUNY Center for the Humanities; co-sponsored by the Poetics Group

Tuesday, October 5
6:30pm

For more information: http://www.centerforthehumanitiesgc.org/

In anticipation of the centenary celebrations of Bishop’s birth in 1911 and in connection with the upcoming publication of Elizabeth Bishop and The New Yorker: The Complete Correspondence (forthcoming in 2011 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux), editor and poet Joelle Biele and guest performers will present a staged theatrical performance of Bishop’s letters as a work-in-progress. In this workshop, moderator Leah Souffrant will invite audience members to comment on evaluating the translation of the epistolary to the performed, letter writing as performance, and the relationships between writers, editors, and their audience.
