Mirage premiere
Photo by Charles Bernstein.

Our film Basil King: MIRAGE premiered on Saturday at Anthology Film Archives. It was part of an event celebrating vibrant 77 years-old Brooklyn based painter/poet Basil King. Great snap shot above taken by poet Charles Bernstein who had to sit on the floor -sorry Charles! Though great perspective of the very attentive audience during the screening.

The afternoon —organized by “the Friends of Basil King” who are also the executive producers of our film— was filled with great panels, presentations, videos & poetry readings.  You can read more about the event here.
Meanwhile our family crew would like to thank you very much for coming or providing support from afar! Do stay tuned since we have entered 14 short film festivals!

Meanwhile I will be switching robes on Sunday September 30, 4PM for a much anticipated gig with Michael Bisio. The beautiful Lower Manhattan 6BC Garden will provide an incredible setting to perform a new installment of Remember-Reflect-Mark, a site/theme specific series of performances that generates music, voice & markings. The first installment of R-R-M was performed on Sept 11 2011 at Erika’s Loft & published in Emergency INDEX 2011 – Ugly Duckling Presse 2011.

Nicole Peyrafitte: Poems and Poetics from “Bi-Valve”

[Nicole Peyrafitte’s move from the French Pyrenees to the United States came in 1987, and from California to New York in the 1990s. She has emerged in the new millennium as a multifaceted collagist, painter, singer & multi-media performer, and in her newest incarnation as a poet/verbal artist who moves readily between two worlds & languages. The following, then, is in recognition of my own witnessing to that career & life & to the energies behind it. (J.R.)]
