“A Letter To A Friend”
By Paul Valéry (1896)
with Kate Tarlow Morgan & Kai Krienke
My time at GWC will prepare and present the second act of “An Evening with Monsieur Teste,” by poet/essayist, Paul Valéry, entitled “A Letter to A Friend.” Stepping out of the solo work of “An Evening with M. Teste” (performed at GWC in 2014)—“A Letter to A Friend” is a pas de deux, scored to a spoken soundtrack inspired by Valéry’s little book (1896) that speaks from the voice of a young poet, age 22. This piece, a total of 6-minutes, is developed in collaboration with Lost and Found scholar, translator, and teacher Dr. Kai Krienke. The rest of the evening will be to share our dialogue with viewers on the subject of the “presence of absence” and the creative forces of relationship.
