The internationally acclaimed poet and classicist Anne Carson and her partner Robert Currie will come to the University of Mississippi soon. On Tuesday, October 23, at 7 p.m., they will perform two experimental, collaborative pieces that involve Carson’s poetry along with dance and film. The titles of the pieces are “Cassandra Float Can” and “Possessive Used as a Drink (Me): A Lecture on Pronouns in the Form of 15 Sonnets.” These pieces will also feature several students from the English and Theatre Departments at the University of Mississippi. The performance will be held at the Rehearsal Hall Space (the small theatre) at the Ford Center. It is free and open to the public but as seating is limited it would be a good idea to come early.
This performance is made possible by the generosity of the John and Renee Grisham Visiting Writers Series, the English Department, the Theatre Department, and the Ford Center.
