In tireless poetics of ekstasis and abundance, Wo Chan and CAConrad remind us that poetry/life is necessarily queer, that to be queer is to grieve, to celebrate, to be attentive, to possibilize impossible worlds. We are here and here is ending. How do we celebrate what is ending? How does anything end at all?
Ticket sales for this event are at capacity. We encourage you instead to join us on the livestream, which you can access here.
This is tentatively planned as a live indoor event at St. Mark's Church. We are following guidelines laid out by the CDC and the State of New York. These include: keeping the number of attendees to a limited capacity; 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 and event staff. 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.
Please arrive prepared to show proof of vaccination and a photo ID at the door. Proof of vaccination may be in the form of your vaccination card (or a picture of your card), the NYC Covid Safe app, or the Excelsior app. If, for medical reasons, you have not been vaccinated, you may instead bring documentation of a negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours.
