I have a new poem for a video up at Thomas Devaney’s video/poem journal, On and On Screen. Please go check it out, especially if you are interested in having your heart broken. The poem is for a salp’uri dance, a traditional Korean shamanic dance form for healing and freedom. My sister showed me this video over the summer, and I haven’t been the same since.
In fact, the salp’uri has inspired me to develop a whole new dance poetics practice. I’m not one who regularly dwells inside my body — or at least I haven’t firmly made a conscious effort to until quite recently — and I am making all sorts of unusual discoveries. I’ll be rolling out some of these dance poems in Philadelphia soon.
