Expanded Poetry: "The Rachel and Shalom Show"

Oct 22, 2015

An event in the long rich tradition of poets and visual arts working together…

"The Rachel and Shalom Show" at the Hellenic American Union

Poet Rachel Hadas and video artist Shalom Gorewitz are attempting to fuse poetry and digital filmmaking through a collaborative process that is not illustrative or narrative, but a kind of syncretic linking. Just as Rachel Hadas is known for synthesizing dreamlike visions and formal precision in her poetry, Shalom Gorewitz often uses words in his experimental films.

“The Rachel and Shalom Show”, which will be presented at the Hellenic American Union, is the outcome of their attempt to combine image and text on video. The show lasts one hour and alternates between reading and short films. An open discussion with the audience will follow. Variations of “The Rachel and Shalom Show” have occurred recently in New York City; the Honors’ the University of Houston, Texas; Literary Arts, Portland, Oregon; and the Athenaeum of St. Johnsbury, Vermont.

The event will be in English and is organized in cooperation with the Hellenic American College (HAEC).
