Through language that is both capacious and precise, movement that is both transgressive and tender, Mirene Arsanios and Iman Mersal explore the liminal space where boundaries press against each other. Please join us to celebrate the publication of their newest works, The Autobiography of a Language and The Threshold.
Featuring a guest introduction by Christopher Rey Pérez
Masks are required at all Poetry Project events unless otherwise and specifically noted. If you forget to bring your mask, we are happy to provide you with one.
We also encourage all event attendees to take a rapid test the day of the event before heading to the church. Here’s a map of testing sites throughout the city. Thank you for helping us keep our wonderful community safe!
This in-person event will also be livestreamed via The Poetry Project's YouTube. Livestream captions will be available via a streamtext link or the CC button on YouTube's player.
Open CART captioning is scheduled for most in-person events.
To keep our community safe, The Poetry Project implements the following at all live events: limiting the number of attendees; requiring proof of vaccination be shown at the door upon arrival; and requiring and providing face masks, as well as hand sanitizer stations. Before each event, we will also be conducting rapid tests for all performers, introducers, and hosts. Attendees are required to register in advance, and contact information is collected at the point of registration in the event that we need to support any public health efforts around contact tracing. We are committed to the safety of our performers, audience, and event staff, and will be fully prepared to update any of these plans and protocols as circumstances continue to evolve. We are grateful to attendees for helping us maintain safety within our present public health context, and look forward to holding meaningful shared listening space together.
