Conducted Improvisation
Conducted Improvisation

LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs What do the tongue and the ear want you to deal with? Through a writing exercise, a language lesson, some translation/mistranslation, and Butch Morris' theory of conducted improvisation, we'll explore sound and voice, the natural and the artificial as kinfolk, and allow the uncomfortable to become comfortable. Please bring one poem—by you or a favorite poet—that speaks in two or more languages, voices, or dialects. In the spirit of conducted improvisation, we'll work with these poems as we compose our own.

LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs is the author of TwERK (Belladonna* 2013). She has been published widely and her performance work has been featured at The Kitchen, Exit Art, Brooklyn Museum, The Whitney, MoMa and The Walker Center. As a curator/director, she has staged events at El Museo del Barrio, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Symphony Space and BAM Café. A recipient of several awards, LaTasha, along with Greg Tate, are the founders and editors of Coon Bidness, yoYo SO4.
