The Heavy Root of Poetry: Street Theater, Graffiti, Folk Song, Writing and Singing While Walking 
Saturday 3/10, 12-4pm
at Libertalia
led by Robi (
From Robi: Song and poetry gather the voices and stories of a place, carry them, make them at once a monument and an experience, a ritual, a returning and a rapture, carry what has happened to the people in that place, carry the prophecies of those people in that place. This workshop will involve intensive meditation-based writing; a lecture and discussion on giving and receiving poetry within the physical and social architecture of this country: through the community and publicity and protest of graffiti, street theater, folk songs; through the privacy of writing or singing while wandering.
