Odd Couples

February 18, 2019, 7P
Berkshire Museum, 39 South Street, Pittsfield, MA
Collaborative pieces by unexpected pairings, commissioned by WordXWord. We lit the fuse. Let's see what happens.
[Free]

We love collaborations / multiple voice pieces, but they happen all too infrequently around these hills. With that in mind, we’ve invited 5 of our favorite poets (let's call them our "seed" poets) to invite someone - that might make for an unexpected pairing - to collaborate in the development and performance of a new piece. Although we're calling the program Odd Couples there will be nothing odd about the results!

Our seed poets include Chloë Geffken, Stan Spencer, Chris Carr, Melissa Quirk Cairns, and Lia Russell-Self. With Brian Lewis, Gale Nelson, Brent Ashby, Wes Elliot, and Laureen Vizza.

We lit the fuse. Let's see what happens.
