Icarus in the L.E.S.
Nic Adams presents Icarus in the L.E.S.
Icarus in the L.E.S. (work in progress showing) is an epic performance-poem that picks up where the myth left off. It presents Icarus – having never died when he fell from the sky – but instead living on, badly crippled. At present, he finds himself in Manhattan looking for respect and notoriety as an artist among the world’s most mystical poets. The excerpt that will be shared at !?:New Works is a teched-out poetry reading featuring live field recordings of NYC street sounds and a performance by Isabella Sazak.
