Hi folks,

Here are some pretty intense bits of poetry: Joyce Mansour's "Screams" , written 1953.

Looking for woman or group of women interested in taking this on, perhaps with some music & sound to accompany it, for Theatrum, pre-recorded or performed live.  Your choice.

This is probably the last Mansour material I'll be kicking out for a while.  Moving on to some other writers, including Leonora Carrington.  Stay tuned.




Hi gang,

Here is a short collection of poems taken from Cesaire's "The Miraculous Weapons" available for anyone to pick up.  You're free to do something with these on your own or if you just want to do a reading Richard (me) is available to record for you and you can simply contact me here at this email address.

As our proofreader, DJ Wagner, discovered; you're probably going to encounter a lot of new words in this poetry you never knew before.




Hi gang,

Here is a short one-act play by Joyce Mansour with four parts: 3 characters and a narrator.  You should contact Grace if you are interested in working on this.


Hi gang,

Here comes the first text ... a collection of Mansour poems that Grace picked out with both International Women's Day (not much time left) and Desolo Luna Vox Theatrum in mind.

Enjoy and let Grace know if your are interested in reading:

KBOO Honors International Women's Day, Sunday, March 8th

International Women's Day is an annual event that began in New York City around the turn of the twentieth century. Initially it sought to raise awareness of the achievements of women. In 1908, on this day, 15,000 women marched in New York City for better pay, working conditions, and an end to child labor. The day became a recognized holiday in many newly socialist countries over the next several years, but ironically fell off the radar, by and large, in the US, until the late 1960s.

Join us on Sunday, March 8th, beginning at 6 AM, as KBOO volunteers honor the contributions of women to art and culture, and raise awareness of the issues that continue to challenge us to action. With 21 hours of special programming produced by women, featuring information and music of the women of the world, and our own backyard.
