Do you hear the poetry in music and the music in poetry? Where does one begin and the other end? Experimental performance artist and musician Laurie Anderson curates and emcees an evening exploring the porous borders between poetry and music. The multimedia extravaganza showcases the talents of a unique lineup of poets from Scotland, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Israel, Germany, Georgia, Poland, Denmark, and the U.S., along with surprise guests.
