PART 4: Meat is Movie: Neo-Benshi Mashup Narration Spectacular


Or call it what you will… it’s the poets that are dragging cinema back to the gutter where it belongs. Watch LIVE in the Parish Hall of St. Mark’s as performers Ariana Reines, Eileen Myles, Bruce Andrews, Brandon Downing, Edwin Torres, Felix Bernstein, the trio of Michael Barron, James Copeland, and William Rahilly, and others stage major interventions and subterfuge of the moving image.

Barron, Copeland and Rahilly will be presenting “Panasonic,” a new performance of video, music, and text by the same arrangement of people that brought you “The Pigeon” (Poetry Time at Space Space, 2010) and “Horn One” (Bowery Poetry Club, 2010).  Barron collaborates on Supermachine (reading series) and Holy Spirits (band). Copeland is the author of Why I Steal and To My Plants (chapbooks).  Rahilly is a video maker and musician.
