This performance will highlight the shared experience of navigating NYC. The poetry, made and taken from advertisements, is the language of architecture, and is created from words that literally cover sides of buildings. The performance will counteract the ads by offering a space to create an exchange – one that is not commercial. This exchange will experiment with poetry and how useless it is. No one needs poetry, and that is what is fabulous about it.
