NOW THAT’S DIALOGUE
NOW THAT'S DIALOGUE

Paul Rudy and Aparna Keshaviah’s “Kinetic Play” tapping into the ground I can’t see for the crowd through a sensing of native American beats plus Bharatanatyam gestures and bells as poetic text: a double language that’s not European, though born of six months’ back-and-forth in the heart of European civilization, our revised Rome. So expressive […]

X LOCUS (ABLUVION)
X LOCUS (ABLUVION)

“For those who submitted to disorientation, it was a success.” “Submit,” says Tom: “that’s the perfect word.” An old archaeologist friend, alongside whom I worked at my first and only dig, two decades ago, veering over the hole listening for voices.

O RESTLESS MARBLE DEAD-FOR-SALE
O RESTLESS MARBLE DEAD-FOR-SALE

CONTINGENCY
CONTINGENCY

A simple plan—planting Galileo’s asters on the ground—becoming marvel in the vapor that the rain sent. A simple solution—that the violist play from under the umbrella of the house—becoming Shakespearean courting and debate between strings and zeros & ones, near midnight among the olives cherries and the pines and the neighbors becoming directors, spectators becoming […]
