Our first effort to have an electronic Dancing Poetry Festival has been most interesting. Our wonderful, live, one time only, performance, in the beautiful theater of a world class art museum, could not be done this year due to Covid-19 virus. We have combined our new dances to poetry, recorded via Zoom from the homes of the dancers, with archival footage of previous Dancing Poetry Festivals. Also included are announcements of newly published poetry books, interviews of poets with particularly interesting topics relating to promoting understanding and peace which is one of the prime purposes of the Dancing Poetry Festivals and its parent organization, Artists Embassy International.
Please forgive the quality of photos. Taking pix off the computer screen is not as good as taking live photos!
