RELAY a dance poetry project with Violet Juno and Margit Galanter

June 8th, 4:00

Ellen Webb Studio, 2822 Union Street, Oakland

Come join us. I will be presenting new work on grief and embodiment through poetry and performance.

Relay is a longterm dance poetry project by Margit Galanter. Inspired by the visual poem Concordance, by Mei-Mei Bersenbrugge and Kiki Smith, for three years Margit has been investigating particular questions around embodied language, in resonance with place and space.

Lines of the Day

The iris opened

on the doorknob


in islands of mildew on the wall

in the wrapping paper in the kitchen

“where are you” it said, and not finding

shut itself up amid in the coffee dregs

trees indifferent to the text.


L’iride si aprí

sulla maniglia dell porta


nelle isole di muffa sul muro

nella carta d’imballaggio in cucina

“dove sei” disse, e non trovando

si rinchiuse tra resti di caffè

alberi indifferenti al testo.
