“Poetry is that which is lost in translation?” is our theme-question. Featuring formidable poet/translator Matt Rosen . Also appearing, the unforgettable singer Cat Rickman. She rocks!
MATT ROSEN is a photographer, writer & translator from London, who studies presently in Paris, and specializes in surrealist poetry. His photos have been published in several magazines, including Stirring: a Literary Collection, and Driftwood Press. He makes every effort to translate works of the surrealist group which have never before appeared in English (like his translations of Breton & Reverdy, in the current issue of Terre à Ciel:http://www.terreaciel.net/). His first play, The Sower Works for Mastery by Turning the Wheel, was featured in the conceptual theatre festival Fourplay.
CAT RICKMAN is a New York-based singer-songwriter, authoress, and poet. Her influences include the jazz greats, various hipster indie queens, and angsty British rock bands. Think, what would happen if Ella sang for the Arctic Monkeys.
