"An Evening with Esopus" at P.S.1

May 11, 2006

Esopus magazine presented an evening of readings and performances at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Space as part of the MoMA affiliate’s “Fine Print” series. Playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis read “Dear Sissy (#3),” one of the series of letter-monologues he has written for Esopus over the past three years. Poet Suji Kwock Kim read “Generation,” her 2002 poem which is featured (along with 21 of its earlier drafts printed in facsimile) in Esopus 6. Finally, folk singer Ruth Gerson performed a set of music, including the public premiere of “Kibby, Zocky Merino, and the Man with the Moustache,” a song Gerson wrote for Esopus 4’s “Imaginary Friends” CD.
