Flattered to be mentioned in this great interview between Poet/artist Bianca Stone and B.Lussier over at the California Journal of Poetics. Bianca's done all kinds of wonderful things. This one is a collaborative book with Anne Carson, Antigonick (an illustrated translation of Sophocles' Antigone). And it is beautiful.

Las Gravitas

My beautiful wife has been blowing up in the New York dance scene lately. This week Danspace Project is hosting a shared evening with a piece I was lucky to collaborate with her on and a piece by Ben Kimitch. Thursday Friday and Saturday 14 15 16. Come see how amazing she really is. Time Out New York says This shared program features Benjamin Kimitch's discontinuous sounds and Aretha Aoki's Las Gravitas. Kimitch, who trained in Chinese folk dance, explores personal memories in his work that includes Julie McMillan and Claire Westby; Aoki constructs a piece—featuring text and sound by Ryan MacDonald and Cassie Peterson—that explores where fact meets fiction.
