The Floor : Beatnik Dancing

Chirie Dautel contacted me and expressed that she wanted to dance while I read poetry. This sounded fun, so we decided to go with a sort-of 'beatnik' theme. I chose to *read* the poem instead or 'perform' it - as the 'real' poets do at their poet gatherings. This also left the stage with more room for Chirie to express herself. She chose the black mock turtleneck as her nod to the 60s beatnik movement. As always at The Floor, Walter Davis led the band which featured Ricardo Hambra on the bongos.

Thanks always to Walter, Carolina and Sascha.
