PLU Open Mic feat. Zarina Zabrisky & Simon Rogghe

July 30, 2015 @ 8:00 pm

This week, PLU’s regular Open Mic – free for all, sign up starting at 20h – is excited to feature two performative artists all the way from San Francisco, CA, Zarina Zabrisky & Simon Rogghe. Their lively words, voices, songs and dances will shine the Parisian night, not to be missed!

When Zarina Zabrisky and Simon Rogghe started writing poems to each other, a “third mind” was created. Their poems dissolve boundaries between their separate identities. Like the surrealists, they believe that literature is bigger than its authors, that art is bigger than an artist. They launched their first book of collaborative poetry, Green Lions (Numina Press), in San Francisco with a full-scale theater show blending poetry, music and dance.

Zarina Zabrisky is the author of the short story collections IRON and A CUTE TOMBSTONE as well as the forthcoming collection EXPLOSION (Epic Rites Press), and a novel WE, MONSTERS (Numina Press). Her work was published in six countries. She is a three-time Pushcart Prize nominee and a recipient of a 2013 Acker Award.

Simon Rogghe is a poet, fiction writer and translator of French surrealism and contemporary fiction, currently earning his Ph.D. in French literature at UC Berkeley. His work has appeared in over twenty literary journals, including 3:AM MagazineLiterary Orphans and Paris Lit Up.
