The Allen Ginsberg Greek Chorus -- Transatlantic Howl! A Dedication to Allen Ginsberg
Faculty, students and alums from the University of Colorado, Boulder and Naropa University will read during Boulder's portion of HOWL in this international event, a first, celebrating poetry across the seas.
In this history-making transatlantic poetic happening, celebrating Allen Ginsberg and his epic poem HOWL, poets will perform at venues in London, Paris, and across the United States. These live poetry readings and poetic theatre pieces will be simultaneously streamed across JANET, Renater, and Internet2 advanced networks. Streaming video and audio will allow audiences at each site to not only observe readings on location, but will provide the ability to experience the art of poetry in remote theaters as well. While Transatlantic Howl! A Dedication to Allen Ginsberg is streamed; anyone from Calcutta to Caracas with broadband access will be able to watch the entire poetry reading as it happens. Featured readers include Amiri Baraka, Anne Waldman, Anne Carson, Alice Notley, Robert Glück, Ken Mikolowski, Danny Karlin, Joanne Kyger, Bob Rosenthal, Steven Taylor, Ed Sanders, Jacqueline Cahen-Sergent, The Allen Ginsberg Greek Chorus, composer and musician Bill Douglas, Stephen Mooney, London Under Construction, students from University College London, and surprise special guests. Anne Waldman of Naropa University and Internet2's Ann Doyle will serve as MCs for this event. Universities who are assisting in producing this poetry reading are: University College London; Birkbeck College, University of London; ENSAM; San Francisco State University; University of Colorado at Boulder; University of Michigan; and New Jersey Institute of Technology.
