PLU Open Mic featuring Adeena Karasick & Milena Elektra

July 23, 2015 @ 8:00 pm

Hot international doubleheader this week at PLU Open Mic with New York poet Adeena Karsick and the indie sounds of Milena Elektra from Berlin. For everyone else, sign up starts around 20h. Read, sing, dance or just stand there looking serious.

Adeena KarasickAdeena Karasick is a New York based poet, performer, cultural theorist and media artist and the author of seven books of poetry and poetics. Writing at the intersection of Conceptualism and neo-Fluxus performatics, her urban, Jewish feminist mashups have been described as “electricity in language” (Nicole Brossard) and noted for their “cross-fertilization of punning and knowing, theatre and theory” (Charles Bernstein) “a twined virtuosity of mind and ear which leaves the reader deliciously lost in Karasick’s signature “syllabic labyrinth” (Craig Dworkin). Most recently is This Poem (Talonbooks, 2012) and The Medium is the Muse: Channeling Marshall McLuhan (NeoPoiesis Press, 2014). She teaches Literature, Critical Theory and Performance at Pratt in New York and is co-founding Director of KlezKanada Poetry Festival and Retreat. The “Adeena Karasick Archive” has just been established at Special Collections, Simon Fraser University.
