STACKS and BRACKO: A Reading and Performance
STACKS, a multi-disciplinary collaboration between choreographer Jonah Bokaer, poet Anne Carson, and sculptor Peter Cole, explores the nature of collapse as manifested in human anatomy, grammar, and everyday objects while challenging traditional concepts of artistic mediums.
BRACKO is also a collaborative work, based on selected texts of Sappho translated by Anne Carson, with original choreography by Rashaun Mitchell. The texts are performed by Mitchell, Carson, Robert Currie, Marcie Munnerlyn, and Elizabeth Streb.
