Corina Copp

Can poetry function as closet drama, occurring offstage? At turns text, event, and chorus? In this three-day seminar and workshop, we’ll move in successive forms — from a close-read of Ingeborg Bachmann’s radio drama, “The Good God of Manhattan” (1958) alongside selections from her poetry, into the film and performance scripts of Kathy Acker, and finally to notes on her own work by Marguerite Duras, whose devotion to sound and disrupted linearity is basically a staging of poetic thinking. We’ll also talk about contemporary, ‘downtown’ theater practices, and will write toward our own new composite texts for performance.

Corina Copp is the author of a forthcoming collection of poems, The Green Ray, and a three-part play, The Whole Tragedy of the Inability to Love, inspired by the work of Marguerite Duras, among other works.
