I see you!

20160316003715-fullsizerender-9-.jpgI was walking down a street in the Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires, when I realized someone was spying on me. Police? A theif? An assassin? I turned around slowly so as not to call his attention. His? What if it were a woman? No, it was a man. He was peering at me from behind a door--painted on the wall! I sighed with relief and took out my trusty Apple I pad and took his picture.

Edgar A. Poe´s "The Raven" and a theater workshop in August


        There is something strongly theatrical in Edgar A. Poe´s "The Raven," about a man sitting alone late at night "...while I ponered weak and weary over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore..." Poe´s "theory of composition" stresses the mood, the image, the effect that the author wants to create. Likewise, the actor must deal with the same elements. The mood conditions the body of the actor. Images are essential to bring to life what is expressed in the script. Suppose you are the man in Poe´s poem. You have to "see" him slumped over his books, "hear" the raven say "nevermore." 
        This year the theater workshop will begin with a performance of Poe´s dramatic poem--Sunday, August 9th at

"Méimon," un film-ensayo de Rodrigo Moreno sobre el trabajo domestico

“Me parece una película muy lenta,”  reclamó furioso un hombre que se identificó como “anarquista” en su juventud y entró en una fuerte discusión con Jorge Altamira del Partido Obrero luego de la exhibición ayer en el Centro Cultural San Martín de “Méimon,” un film-ensayo de Rodrigo Moreno sobre la vida de una mujer doméstica. Para otro espectador “es una película poética extraordinaria que además logra gran profundidad.”  En realidad la “lentitud” de la película tiene que ver con la estética del director y su manera de comunicar con el espectador.

La lectura de “El Capital” que hacen en varias escenas un grupo de intelectuales, puntualiza  la alienación que sufre el trabajador en el sistem

The difficulty of comprehending other cultural traditions


"Some people are unable to grasp the inner meaning and the psychological reality of all that is outwardly strange, at first sight incomprehensible, in a different culture." Bronislaw Malinowski: "Argonauts of the Western Pacific."

"The Raven," dramatization of E.A. Poe's poem


You decide to work on the Edgar Allen Poe’s captivating and dark image-rich poem, “The Raven.” Shadowy impressions of that ebony bird posed upon the bust of Pallus had haunted your thoughts for decades but it was only recently that you imagined dramatizing it. Then when you find yourself tapping your feet to the rythym of a jazz musician’s trumpet at The Garth Gallery in Columbia, Pennsylvania, the idea bursts into your consciousness.

             So you read the poem. How in Hell can you work this into a theatrical presentation? Theater involves a special kind of communication with spectators: the script is the guide, but the breath and the voice in all of their variations bring life to

Rick Kearns, poet laureate of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

“By the time I was nine I had written a few poems and I realized that I would be writing poetry for the rest of my life,” says Rick Kearns, aka Rick Kearns-Morales, the poet laureate of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Also freelance writer and musician, his first love was music: “I came to love music by the time I was five or six years old.” Not long after that “I started noticing that some words and phrases were musical, that I enjoyed their sounds.”
Of Puerto Rican and European background and named Poet Laureate of the City of Harrisburg in 2014, he has fused his concern with music and writing with an intense concern for social issues.
--Were you surprised when you woke up to discover that you had been named Poet Laureate?
--Thanks, an

The Blankets Whispered, a verse


The blankets whispered touched and free

   Lovers hands travelling rivers, mountains, centuries

  Rested, and roved, and sought and caressed

          While the sun played drunkenly on the edges of the moon.

Their words resounded on the starched sheets as beckoning swallows

     And the world went its way, and conventions went their way and

  Silence pervaded the sheets where the lover’s moist palms clasped and moved and spoke of joy.  &nbs
