Tonight (June 7), Koreatown’s Bourbon Street Cafe hosts the final installment of Keith Glassman’s dance and performance series A Poet, A Musician and A Dancer Walk Into a Coffeehouse.... The evening program features poetry by CalArts Creative Writing faculty and alumnus Douglas Kearney (Critical Studies MFA 04), along with choreography by Glassman and music by composer Charles Sharp.

The project, the latest edition in a series of collaborative projects by Glassman, aims to offer dance performance in unexpected places—in other words, bringing dance to audiences, instead of the other way around. Referencing a time when the Beat Generation used coffeehouses as spaces to test experimental performance and literature, A Poet, A Musician and A Dancer Walk Into a Coffeehouse…  combines spoken word, original music and choreography in the intimate settings of cafes.

Poets previously featured in the series are Santa Perversa and Gloria Alvarez, who read in Atwater Village and Hollywood, respectively. Admission is free, reservations suggested and venue patronage encouraged.
