Performance Lab with Peggy Dobreer

  • WE Labs 235 E Broadway Ave, 8th Floor Long Beach USA (map)

Explore poetic license, poetic presence, & poetic nuisance with accomplished So Cal poet Peggy Dobreer. Peggy is going to lead a seminar that will help us write from the body, read from the breath, edit from the art.

Peggy Dobreer came to poetry by way of dance and experimental theatre. A career artist and educator, she believes that figs are the flushest fruit, and tango is absolutely necessary. Her first book of poetry, In The Lake of Your Bones, was published in 2012 by MoonTide Press. Individual poems have been published in Malpais Review, Fogged Clarity, L.A. Yoga Magazine, The Bicycle Review, and Matthew Mars' Haiku Remix Project. In 2013, Ms. Dobreer was included in the anthologies A Poet Is a Poet No Matter How Tall, and Ekphrastia Gone Wild, which includes work by Nobel Laureate. Wislawa Szymborska. Peggy is a member of The Hollywood Institute of Poetics, and Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center. She lives in Los Angeles with her daughter and is the founder and cuator of THE RwIrGiHtTe READ literary events and workshops. You may visit her a twww.peggydobreer.com.
