theNewerYork Literary Carnival III
SALES HAVE CLOSED BUT YOU CAN BUY W/ CASH/CARD RIGHT AT THE DOOR.
SEE YOU THERE!
------ theNewerYork Book III is a collection of experimental and weird short-fiction, graphic design, and art. The production of the book is funded on Kickstarter.com and is created by writers and artists from all over the world.
The crowd sits on the ground, covered with Persian rugs and pillows, as a series of absurd and quick narratives unfold before them. The crowd also takes part in the show, introducing pieces, and sometimes performing them. There are also games like MadLibs, Rorschach tests, and free-association. You don't have to be literary and you don't have to take part, just come and enjoy the show.
There are booths where you can use tickets to purchase poems. Group canvases to interpret pieces of fiction from the magazine. And other literary pitstops.
Come get weird with words.
Actors and Performers include:
Jesse Goldwater (Balthazar): Couldn't be more excited to be a part of the Literary Carnival and to speak these amazing words. Bringing Balthazar to life has been an experiment in oh so many wonderful ways. Graduate of NYU Tisch Drama dept BFA in Acting.

Theatre Credits include- The Devil and Thomas Briggs (Bleecker Street Theater NYC), Wake Up! (New Orleans Fringe Festival), and Hamlet, in the title role at NYU. Many many thanks and love to Joshua, Michelle, Vivian and the whole theNewerYork team for putting this together and letting me join along. Now buy some of their books dammit!
