I’m very excited to be reading at this year’s League of Canadian Poets event in Saskatoon. My energy is still somewhat low, but is coming back with regular rest breaks throughout the day. Though I’m not up to actually performing yet, a poetry reading is something I feel I can handle. Continue reading
I just got an email from Rob Voisey of Vox Novus about recent updates to the 60×60 site. The most exciting part is an integrated grid of video pieces by Zlatko Cosic mixed especially for the 60×60 Midwest Minutes. My piece between is #40 in the grid. You can work your way through the videos by clicking on them or follow this link to the video for my piece.
In my recovery I’ve been reading a lot: online and books. I am trying to keep up with my “professional” reading as well as some reading for enjoyment.

A couple of weeks ago I received a package from Istanbul. It took me a minute to recall who might be sending me a package from such an exotic place and then I remembered the wonderfully intense Nick Hobbs from Pantheatre. The package contained a CD of photos from the two Pantheatre workshops I attended in 2006. Continue reading
I have promised numerous times since I started writing here post-MA to talk more about my degree. However, the time that has passed since my degree has been odd and quite trying. Upon completion of my MA I had all the best intentions of continuing to work on my show splanchnologies as well as revisiting my dissertation in the hopes of doing more research on liminality and performance and perhaps sending in some article proposals to various magazines.
