The Broad Stage continues their collaboration with Red Hen Press for Red Hen Press: The Fool in the World on Sunday, February 10 in The Edye at The Broad Stage. Composer Sophia Serghi and writer Nancy Schoenberger combine to present a multi-art performance piece comprising original music, poetry and artwork, inspired by the imagery of the 22 cards of the Tarot’s Major Arcana. This piece is presented in conversation with the narrative poetry of Judy Grahn and Brynn Saito.
The Broad Stage and Red Hen Press have a history of bringing music, poetry and performance together in The Edye. Last season, Red Hen Press events featured GRAMMY® Award winners Hila Plitmann and Eric Whitacre, as well as California Poet Laureate Dana Gioia, Brendan Constantine, and t’ai freedom ford. The Edye at The Broad Stage also hosted the Los Angeles premiere of Samuel Beckett’s Imagination Dead Imagine, set to music composed by Michael Roth.
Kate Gale, Managing Editor of Red Hen Press said, “The Broad Stage is a fantastic place to premiere and explore new work from Red Hen Press writers and other poets from Los Angeles and beyond. With The Broad Stage’s diverse programming, we feel at home in presenting these performances that transcend genres. I’m especially thrilled about February’s event, which explores the intersection of poetry, music and art through the voices of four incredible and inspiring women.”
