Semantic Deviation: Simultaneous Poetry, Performance, Cocktails

Thursday, May 26, 6:30-8:30pm

The Absurdist presents-
Semantic Deviation: Simultaneous Poetry and Performance

Within words we are found. Without words what is left? Prepare for an evening of semantic excursions. By speaking everything all at once, we say nothing at all. Join The Absurdist and the The Dead Alleys in a simultaneous poetry recitation punctated with startling performances intent to rip the veil of meaning from the grunts and bleatings we label as human language.

The Dead Alleys is a cultural experiment performed in a dadaist fashion by Ana Montenegro and Kaitlin Trataris. Through their performance of songs they both appreciate and don’t understand, they explore the way in which music is transformed, transferred and transversed when dislocated from its original context and/or language.

Il n’y a de réalité que dans l’action.
(There is no reality except in action.)
— John Paul Sartre
