About this Show:
Written by conceptual artist and author Filip Noterdaeme as a contemporary echo to “HOWL,” Ginsberg’s haunting poem of 1955, GRUNT will rekindle the “supernatural ecstasy” the original poem once had (but has arguably lost since it has been co-opted by the mainstream), making it once again the provocative, powerful and sexy rant against capitalism it was meant to be. The new poem will be presented by Noterdaeme himself, delivered in the tradition of Ginsberg’s original recitation of “HOWL”: in the tumbling, hallucinatory style that came to be associated with the Beats.
Miss Penny Arcade will open the show with a live reading of Allen Ginsberg’s “HOWL.”
Filip Noterdaeme is the author of the Gertrude Stein-inspired memoir, The Autobiography of Daniel J. Isengart.
