Twin Towers Kat Georges & Peter Carlaftes Read in London Sept. 11
THREE ROOM PRESS' OWN
KAT GEORGES & PETER CARLAFTES
(AKA — THE TWIN TOWERS)
INVADE LONDON WITH POETRY ON 9/11
The Cellar returns on the 11th September with a top notch bill that includes: Kat Georges- Anthologised in the seminal Outlaw Bible of American Verse, Kat Georges is a true Renaissance woman - helming the Three Rooms Press, directing many off Broadway shows and running a weekly poetry event that has featured the like of Mark Strand, Anne Waldman and Paul Violi.
Peter Carlaftes is a New York-based comic author, screenwriter, playwright, actor, poet, and director. He is the author of 12 plays, including a noir treatment of Knut Hamsun’s Hunger, and the celebrity rehab center spoof, Spin-Dry. He has appeared in numerous Off-Broadway productions, including his comic solo performance piece, Lenny Bruce: Dead & Well and brings his new book of bar poems —DRUNKYARD DOG, across the pond.
The Bros Grim- Skating the thin line between Hogarthian satire and full blown polemic, Chip Grim is as understated yet compelling a performer as he is a wordsmith. Dividing his time between the poetry scene and the Allstars boxing gym, Chip knows how to throw some heavy bombs and any lull in his tempo is a rope a dope before the next hit lands.
Vanessa Kisuule- You may have seen this young lady kicking up a storm on many of London's open mics, so it is our pleasure to give a full set to Vanessa, who is destined to reach such heights that everyone will eventually know how to pronounce her name.
Your host for the night will be Niall O'Sullivan if he's allowed out.
