Antena: Jen Hofer and John Pluecker: September 27, 2018

For the second event in The Poetry Center's premier Tripwire Cross-Cultural Poetics Series, we present Antena, a language justice and language experimentation collaborative, represented by poet-translators Jen Hofer and John Pluecker, reading, in performance, and in conversation. Antena enact their collaborative practice by engaging in topics chosen through audience feedback, free-flowing association, and discussion of current and past projects, culminating in a performance of improvised interpretative poem-making using excerpts out of June Jordan's Naming Our Destiny: New & Selected Poems (Thunder's Mouth Press, 1989) and Antena's own RECLICLADOS LANGUAGES リサイクルされた LENGUAJES RECYCLED 言語 (Libros Antena Books, 2016). The performance is followed by a conversation with the audience.
