Sons and Daughters of Staff Take
On Acting, Crafts, Computers and More

They were no more than five minutes into the workshop when mothers and daughters and mothers and sons - each duo a stranger to the other - were showing their favorite dance step, or improvising one, then copying the steps of each other. They mimicked a ballerina and a swimmer, did a twist, a twirl, the hula, an indescribable shake, and an I-don't-have-a-favorite-dance shrug step and many others. And this was just the warm-up. More

I Never Knew
What Time It Was
David Antin

In this series of intricately related texts, internationally known poet, critic, and performance artist David Antin explores the experience of time--how it's felt, remembered, and recounted. These free-form talk pieces — sometimes called talk poems or simply talks — began as improvisations at museums, universities, and poetry centers where Antin was invited to come and think out loud.

Serious and playful, they move rapidly from keen analysis to powerful storytelling to passages of pure comedy, as they range kaleidoscopically across Antin's experiences: in the New York City of his childhood and youth, the Eastern Europe of family and friends, and the New York and Southern California of his art and literary career.
