Wayne Koestenbaum: Camp Marmalade on East 65th Street
The Artist’s Institute
132 E. 65th Street
New York, New York
October 10, 7pm
Inspired by stanzas in his recently-published book, Camp Marmalade, the second volume of Koestenbaum’s “trance trilogy,” the poet will perform improvisatory Sprechstimme recitative, with free-style musical accompaniment—keeping open, in the evening’s séance, to the assistance of such ghosts as Charles T. Griffes, Alexandre Tansman, Germaine Tailleferre, and Witold Lutoslawski, though these invitees have not yet RSVP’d, and may decline to attend. The poet will also project a very brief instructional video.
