Anne Carson and Rashaun Mitchell

Bracko and Nox, a New Work in Progress

Bookmark and Share

Some of America’s best artists come together in dynamic collaborations between the visual arts, poetry, and dance. During a residence at the ICA this July, the artists will create, refine, and present new works and share insights into the creative process.

Poems by the great Greek writer Sappho are the basis for Bracko, a transporting exploration of language and movement. In her magnificent translations of the fragmented poems, Carson uses brackets to stand in for the missing material, providing an air of mystery. As Carson reads aloud, Rashaun Mitchell and Marcie Munnerlyn, both leading dancers with Merce Cunningham Dance Company, will inhabit these gaps with their own sublime artistry. Mitchell has been described as “the most riveting” (New York Times) member of MCDC, where he has danced for six years. He will be joined by Silas Reiner, also a current member of MCDC, in a new work in progress inspired by Nox, Carson’s first book of poetry in five years, which includes old letters, family photos, collages and sketches.
