GASP (Girls Assembling Something Perpetual) proposes a creative performance of Alice Notley’s The Descent of Alette. Founded by six female poets, GASP creates a poet’s theater of part abstraction, part sublimity, part accident, and part gesture. GASP seeks to find ways within theater, within a “play,” to parallel, not translate, radical elicitations of text, body, and atmosphere. To speak as both mouth and limb simultaneously.
