March 20: Dada Poetry Salon at Cornelia Street Cafe
It's back! And better than ever. The second annual edition of the very special one-night-only Dada Poetry Salon, with Dada hostess Kat Georges! Wear your favorite Dada fashion, bring your Dada-inspired poetry for the open reading (sign up at 5:45, limited spaces available!).
Featured guest poets will include DaDa superstars including boxer/poet Arthur Cravan and dada manifesto creator Tristan Tzara, brought back to life for this special event. Plus the unveiling of a Dada performance play by some of your favorite Son of a Pony poets. Plus: the return of the controversial City Scum Shot duo.
The first 50 people will receive a free copy of the inaugural and only issue of Maintenant Trois (inspired by Arthur Cravan's 1915 Maintenant magazine, which was the first ’zine ever). Prepare for irreverant art and an evening that will challenge your ideas about the nature and necessity of creation in a world suffering the ongoing effects of an “economic Pearl Harbor.”
Doors open 5:45. Admission $7 includes free drink. Cornelia St. Cafe is at 29 Cornelia St. between W. 4th St. & Bleecker. Close to many trains at W. 4th St. station: A-B-C-D-E-F-V. So, Yes We Can get there. Do so...
