“As anyone who’s gone to the movies or a poetry reading or church in a Black neighborhood or an Indian neighborhood knows, we *talk back*. We must in order to make our own space in the performance, our own space in the world.”
Kore Press proudly presents New York poet, singer, critic, scholar, bandleader and actor, Tracie Morris, in performance on Friday, April 7. Morris will be presenting her poetic, Neo-Benshi-inspired sound performance in response to Stanley Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut” in the grand hall of the Scottish Rites Cathedral on Scott Ave, Tucson. Event runs 5-9PM.
Join us for dinner, drinks, and a meet-n-greet with world-renowned artist Tracie Morris from 5-6PM, with Mary Turcotte on piano. An evening-length performance (with intermission) follows. Dr. Stephanie Troutman will talk on stage with Morris about the work. There will also be raffle tickets and a solidarity resource table.
