Tracie Morris Workshop Retreat at the Colony

Generating Sound in Poetry with Tracie Morris
August 30 to September 2 2012
In this course we will explore the relationship between body, page and voice. At the end of the course students can present page-based or space-based work to the community.
We'll be doing physical exercises and writing. The workshop is not restricted to any one medium and a cross-disciplinary approach is welcomed.
Tracie Morris is an multidisciplinary poet, performer and scholar and works extensively as a sound artist, writer, bandleader and actor. Her installations have been presented at the Whitney Biennial, Ronald Feldman Gallery, the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning and the New Museum. She holds an MFA in poetry from Hunter College and a PhD in Performance Studies from New York University. Dr. Morris is an Associate Professor of Humanities and Media Studies at Pratt Institute. Her poetry book, TDL: To Do w/ John(2012) is published by Zasterle Press. Rhyme Scheme, a longer poetic manuscript is published by Chax Press for publication in 2012. She is also developing two audio projects: The Tracie Morris Band and sharpmorris, a collaboration with composer Elliott Sharp.
