PLU Open Mic featuring Alessandra Trevisan

January 14, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 11:55 pm

Open Mic continues this week with a special Italian guest participating in PLU’s new Mini-Writing Residency, Alessandra Trevisan. She will also be hosting a Multimedia Writing Workshop on Saturday, January 16th at Berkeley Books of Paris. For everyone else, sign-up starts at 20h. Read, sing, dance or just play dumb: the stage is yours!

Alessandra Trevisan is a vocalist and writer. She’s actively researching on the voice, both as a creator and as a scholar. She has been working on pop music, jazz and experimental composition; she practices voice improvisation using effects and loops and she is the lead singer for UNKNWN, an electronic band, where she sings her own poems. She’s interested in the relationship between voice and live performances, songwriting and writing, poems and lyrics, both in Italian and in English. She has a contemporary experimental and yet lyrical approach to poetry and music.

She has been hosting for the past four years “Virgole di poesia” with the Italian poet Anna Toscano on Radio Ca’ Foscari in Venice. She is also a critic for “Poetarum Silva” lit-blog and currently working on a Phd proposal on the Italian novelist and actress Goliarda Sapienza.
