    An Evening With Anne Carson and Dancers: Bracko and Cassandra Float Can: Reading and Performance

    Poet and scholar Anne Carson has exhilarated East Coast audiences with live mash-ups of poetry, dance, and performance art, drawing fans such as Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson. A collaborative performance of movement and text that combines a re-working of Anne Carson’s translation of selected poems by Sappho with dance, Bracko is performed in four voices with two dancers, choreographed by Rashaun Mitchell of the Merce Cunningham Dance...

    Poet and scholar Anne Carson has exhilarated East Coast audiences with live mash-ups of poetry, dance, and performance art, drawing fans such as Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson. A collaborative performance of movement and text that combines a re-working of Anne Carson’s translation of selected poems by Sappho with dance, Bracko is performed in four voices with two dancers, choreographed by Rashaun Mitchell of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. In Cassandra Float Can, Carson brings together text, dance, and video projection in a multidisciplinary exploration of the divergence of translation through the mythic figure of Cassandra, the phenomenology of Edmund Husserl, and the artistic vision of Gordon Matta-Clark. Her most recent works include Decreation: Poetry, Essays, Operas and The Beauty of the Husband. A poet, classics scholar, and winner of the MacArthur “Genius” Award, Carson is also the author of Eros the Bittersweet and translator of If Not Winter: Fragments of Sappho. She resides in New York City. Dancers Rashaun Mitchell and Marcie Munnerlyn are currently performing with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Robert Currie is an artist who lives in New York City. A panel discussion will follow the performance. Presented by the Newhouse Center for the Humanities at Wellesley College.
