Flow–Winged Crocodile

If you happen to be in NYC, tomorrow or Sunday, you must experience Leslie Scalapino's Flow—Winged Crocodile, directed by Fiona Templeton and featuring dancer Molissa Fenley. Leslie was very excited about this performance, and word on the street is Chax will have the text version, Flow—Winged Crocodile and A Pair / Actions Are Erased / Appear, on hand. Totally essential...

Flow–Winged Crocodile: A Noh Play by Leslie Scalapino
 Directed by Fiona Templeton, with Katie Brown, Stephanie Silver and Julie Troost. Dance by Molissa Fenley. Music by Joan Jeanrenaud. Projected drawings by Eve Biddle. Technical director: Ray Roy III.

This Noh play by poet Leslie Scalapino travels between the left and right sides of the brain, with appearances by a reincarnated Patty Hearst in the 1974 SLA bank heist and a green-winged creature that is part crocodile, part Michelin man and part charging rhino. The play is performed by The Relationship, a performance group directed by Fiona Templeton that specializes in innovative language and use of site.

Cosponsored by Belladonna and The Poetry Project.
$10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House and Poetry Project Members
