Nancy Lange

(click thru to see large)

An extraordinary multi-media event to go to this coming Sunday, in Laval near Montreal -- especially if you understand French. Nancy Lange is an exceptional poet, whose fourth full-length collection is coming out with Ecrits des forges. This is a collaboration of slides taken on travels through Greece, Turkey, Peru and Argentina, carefully synchronized with poems that relate to or are inspired to these scenes. I'm sure it will be a beautiful occasion: I saw a previous presentation of the same show this Spring, also in Laval. This time, she tells me, she has memorized her texts to further heighten the drama of the performance -- an hours' worth, all told -- and will be accompanied by a cellist.

Sounds awesome! I can't memorize my work for the life of me. She gets my props for that much already. :P
