ACW’s Poetry Machine debuts at Chef Darrell’s Mountain Diner

Pay attention the next time you’re in the movie theater, grocery store, diner, or your local hardware store… you might encounter the Adirondack Center for Writing Poetry Machine! ACW Visiting Writer Erin Dorney repurposed a vintage vending machine to distribute free pocket-sized poems.

ACW’s Poetry Machine will move to different locations throughout the North Country, bringing poetry to people in unique and unexpected ways. The machine will be based at Chef Darrell’s Mountain Diner in Blue Mountain Lake for the month of February! More locations to be announced soon.

The Poetry Machine features 10 distinct styles of poetry, including haiku, cento, epistolary, list, ode, ekphrasis, prose poem, how-to, erasure, and cut-up.

Sacre by Circa Contemporary Circus

Wednesday, February 22, 7:30 pm – 9 pm
Ten acrobats from the Circa ensemble bring Stravinsky’s seminal The Rite of Spring to the circus stage. Pulsating with tension and infused with dark humour, this distinctive production from Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz confronts humanity’s inter-connectivity, our inherent sexual desire and relationship with divinity. Featuring a piercing lighting design by Veronique Benett and a stirring new composition by Philippe Bachman for the first half, Sacre penetrates the senses and stirs the soul.
