Our Howl: Language, Dance and Movement of Meaning

Our Howl: Language, Dance and Movement of Meaning

Overview
Locations

In the groundbreaking poem Howl (1955), Allen Ginsberg gave voice to a generation stifled by the conformism of mid-century industrial capitalism. With its emphasis on the sanctity of the body, Howl invites us to explore new corporeal expressions and meanings. For our fall dance concert, we will draw upon and embark from key themes in Howl, including the intersection of language and the body. Yet Our Howl will feature utterly new utterances and movements, and will include a piece by New York choreographer, Ben Munisteri, whose work is set to Ariel's Full Fathom Five, from Shakespeare's The Tempest; a collaboration between the Exiled Poets and Hypnotic, ASL students and...; as well as a performance by Sarah Skaggs in connection with Patti Smith's musical rendition of the "Footnote to Howl."
