A Radical Recovery of Language with Joey De Jesus

April 22 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Over a period of practice, the adept at summoning learns the essential ingredients required for an evocation. Can an image, lyric fragment or sound constitute an essential element in recreating an evocative experience? Can text be liberated from a previous incarnation? In this workshop, participants will radically self-plagiarize writing in an attempt to recover language from their individual proximities to privilege and delusions of industry, performance and publishing. This non-revision course will require participants to compose a text by revisiting the most evocative moments across their writing.  We will read excerpts of text, and discuss clips of performance art in relation to the recovery of voice.
