Trickster Feminism with Anne Waldman & Friends
This event will highlight Anne Waldmans new book Trickster Feminism, Penguin, 2018.

With musicians, vocalists: Fast Speaking Music (Devin Brahja Waldman and Ambrose Bye)
With special guests: Melanie Dyer, Janice Lowe, Thurston Moore, Nicole Peyrafitte and the premiere of a short video Crepuscular by No Land, 2018.

Trickster Feminism was written during long months of protest under the stress of political dystopia, with some poems penned in the streets. Mythopoetics, shape-shifting, quantum entanglement, litany, Anthropocene blues, chance operation all play and meet at the crossroads of troubling gender and outwitting patriarchy.

Her intimate knowledge of the outrider tradition is, at this point, so invaluable that she should be considered not only a national treasure, but an international one -- that one-of-a-kind person who has dedicated her life to identifying and tending to a lineage of creative resistance.
--Marcella Durand, Hyperallergic

This reading/performance will present a range of texts with musical accompaniment.
