Between Poetry and Performance
A free virtual workshop series that invites writers of all experience levels to reimagine poetry through theater and film. How can these mediums get words into motion, and push poetry into action?
Jasminne Mendez, Monica Prince, Takeo Rivera, Andrew Edwards, Anya Pearson, Remy Davison, and Danny Cho
The workshop series was hosted by City of Asylum, and curated by Paloma Sierra as the Emerging Poet Laureate of Allegheny County 2020-2021.
A collaboration between artists, writers, and translators from diverse backgrounds to showcase the story of Pittsburgh - a story that crosses language barriers.
The initiative was part of a year-long research on translation and arts, in collaboration with Abigail Salmon; and was supported by Carnegie Mellon's Dietrich Honors Fellowship Program, and Charles C. Dawe Memorial Award.
The exhibition took place at Assemble, as part of Penn Ave Art District's First Fridays event (March 2019). A print publication followed the exhibit and is available at Assemble, City of Asylum, and other local organizations.
