Dj Margaret is joined in conversation with writers DAVID BUUCK, TOM COMITTA, and dancemaker ABBY CRAIN on their current projects and practice.
DAVID BUUCK is a writer and founder of BARGE, the Bay Area Research Group in Enviro-aesthetics, and co-founder and editor of Tripwire, a journal of poetics and art. His poetry, prose, essays, and artwork have been published and shown in a variety of contexts, from books to galleries to performance events. Buuck is a freelance editor and critic, and teaches writing at Bard, Mills College, among other art schools. He is an active member of Small Press Traffic, a bay area literary arts organization. Publications include THE SHUNT (Palm Press 2009) and Buried Treasure Island: a detour of the future (YBCA 2008). An Army of Lovers, co-written with Juliana Spahr, is forthcoming from City Lights.
He lives in Oakland.
ABBY CRAIN is a dancemaker and performer with roots in both the Bay Area and New York performance worlds. Her current work is neither spectacular nor breathtaking but rigorously pursues a drive towards simplicity as a means through which to illuminate and reveal the complexity and singularity of the moving body and the specific texture of live performance. While located within and around the traditional context of theater/ audience/ performance, the work diligently aims to question and upset the assumptions of these frameworks. She has presented work in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and has worked extensively with Miguel Gutierrez and Sara Shelton Mann. She teaches and makes work with Margit Galanter under the moniker “ARTWORKOUTS”, and is engaged in an ongoing collaboration around movement, language and performance with Bay Area poet, David Buuck.
TOM COMITTA lives in San Francisco. He is the publisher of calmaplombprombombbalm.com, an online publishing house of MEDIAted writing. His vowel-driven super cut of Allen Ginsberg’s HOWL titled Howl in Six Voices was exhibited in Robert Berman/E6 gallery’s Say Something! and in textsound.com Issue 11. Since 2011, Comitta has co-composed, co-conducted, and co-produced nine guerrilla operas with The San Francisco Guerrilla Opera Company. These operas have been staged in sites around the Bay Area including Adobe Bookshop, Civic Center BART, the Bay to Breakers route, and the Berkeley Art Museum. Last month, he produced “Bowling in Bowlers”, an afternoon of sound poetry and lawn bowling at The Oakland Lawn Bowling Club featuring Charlie Morrow, Maija-Leena Remes, friends, and strangers.
