BIG NEW STUFF COMIN'
|Vagabond Alexander Beaumont, director and creator of AVT|
I'm shuttling off to NYC for a few days, by the way HAPPY BIRTHDAY VAGABOND, director, poet, cineaste, and creator of Audio Visual Terrorism (AVT)! Every year, Vagabond and the AVT team have created short films about Coney Island. They are cinematic love letters in my humble opinion. Their love of the place has rubbed off on me. I can feel the deep roots of Coney Island in the heart of New Yorkers. Their film Coney Island Dreaming won first place in the 2015 Film Festival.
Our latest film is called Baron Saturday of Coney Island. I wrote and read the narration of the story. The film premieres Sunday, September 15th. AVT veteran Omar Villegas' experimental dance piece Broken Mantra, featuring choreographer and dancer Gabriela Rose, will screen Saturday. We will attend all three nights of the festival. I am looking forward to this very special series of events.
ALSO it is very possible that I will be reading in the East Village cocktail lounge LADY STARDUST on Tuesday, September 17. IN ADDITION it is quite likely that I will premiere my latest fiction piece (so far unpublished but there's a lingering situation at a Paris magazine who says they want it) LES BATS at Bullet Space, also in the LES. More on that soon.
