We are honoured to announce that Perdu will host a performance by the American poet CAConrad on March the 5th. Without a doubt, CAConrad is one of the most extraordinary poets in contemporary American poetry. His “(soma)tic poetry rituals” constitute an experimental praxis that focuses less on formal or ideological innovation, but rather on establishing a physical presence and thereby releasing transgressional forms of creativity.
CAConrad will treat the audience to an elaborate poetry reading, and sit down with Dutch poets Frank Keizer and Joost Baars for a conversation on his work. Tungsten Press has printed a special plano/broadside of a new poem by CAConrad, which will be for sale after the program.
