me kissing Loueva

Loueva Smith is someone I've run across now and then but didn't really get to know until last summer, when we were both in the dance film, Framing Bodies: LOVE ME.

She's primarily a poet and branching out a bit. She always has surprising images in her work and just a couple of months ago appeared in a multimedia show she co-created with Freneticore Dance Theater. Her Tenderina was the tale of a stripper ballerina, but that title doesn't begin to tell you about the truly tender story that was told through fresh images and not a little humor.

Loueva is treasure. If you see she's reading somewhere near you, do make the effort to hear her. You can thank me later.

  1. It was a wonderful kiss! I love all the electrical switches over my shoulder, and the unseen angels I'm looking at over our heads. xL
