Poesia en Abril: The Dance of Poetry

Listen into a performance based on Ernesto Cardenal's Genesis, Politics, Love. Marcela Muñoz directs this homage to three eras of Latin-American poetry and seamlessly interweaves it with an evening of dance. Ernesto Cardenal reads three of his own poems. Thirteen Chicago-based poets also perform their own work written specifically for the occasion.
This event was sponsored in part by Contratiempo.fp.or

Recorded Saturday, April 18, 2009 at Chicago Center for the Performing Arts.
