Stanzas in Meditation in the Park

Calling all Steinians,

To coincide with Stein 09 festivities, Critical Animals is hosting a public reading of Gertrude Stein’s Stanzas In Meditation in its entirety. The continuous audition of the work will be an act of criticism emphasising certain of its essential qualities: its music, its process, that it is a monument, and that it creates an environment.

The event will feature several revered Animals – Penny Duff, Stu Hatton, Derek Motion, Michael Farrell, Ella O’Keefe, Jal Nicholl – and, possibly, yourself. This is an open event; all audience and passersby are invited to take part in the collective reading as they please. If you’re interested, let us know at criticalanimals@gmail.com or simply turn up on the day.
