Waldo Pardon, Alexandra Myshalov, Nadia de Vries and Adrienne Herr @ Motto Berlin
Saturday March 11th, 6-9pm
‘Class of 2017’ will be a reading in preparation for greater things. Showcasing artists and poets who have little in common, other than their enrollment and an A+ attitude. Come to a presentation of new work by 4 poets.
Most Likely to Get Out of Here:
Waldo Pardon (b. 1997, Belgium) is a writer and filmmaker. For Class of 2017, Pardon will read the first chapter of ‘The Bacterial Anchor,’ his unfinished novel. ‘The Bacterial Anchor’ is a fairy tale that revolves around 4 teenagers, densely keyworded, sinisterly branded, and their pilgrimage to an OG necropolis as soon as they get released from a juvenile detention center in Florida.
Most Likely to Crash on Your Couch:
Alexandra Myshalov (b. 1995 USA) is a writer, globalized subject, and sacrificial object. For Class of 2017, Alexandra will read “Port of call”, a rubric for narcissistic divination that combines confessional narrative and cut ups from Heavier than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain.
Most Liked by Parents:
Nadia de Vries (b. 1991, the Netherlands) is a poet and curator. She is the author of First Communion (2015), R.I.P. Nadia de Vries (2016) and Pain in Translation (forthcoming 2017). In 2016, she curated Sisternhood, a poetry anthology featuring work by European women writing in English. She lives and works in Amsterdam.
Most Likely to Succeed:
Adrienne Herr (b. 1991 USA) is a poet who works heavily with video and performance.
