greater distance— a Paces presentation

  • Moe's Books 2476 Telegraph Avenue Berkeley, CA, 94704 United States (map)
Paces: dance and poetry to fit to the space, the  collaborative partnership of dancer & choreographer Lucinda Weaver and poet & storyteller Alan Bern will present a performance based on Bern's new book of poetry, greater distance and other poems, published by Lines & Faces in December, 2015.

Bern will read the central section of the book, and he and Weaver will perform a dance/poetry collaboration based on a poem from the book, Dialogue, a dramatic dialogue between Hildegard of Bingen and St. Francis of Assisi.

A raffle will be held for one of the broadsides Bern received when he was awarded the 2015 Littoral Press Broadside Contest, from several stations in the Leggenda di San Francesco d'Assisi by Giotto di Bondone.
