bill berry, jr., CEO/Publisher aaduna

bill berry will share personal dynamics of being “mad” within the conceptual framework of race, culture, societal acceptance and  trying to be human in 21st century America. He will read his performance piece, “The Intricacies of a Madman” premiered at the Auburn Unitarian Universalist Society in his not too distant past. “Madman” will be supplemented by his essays, “The Artificiality of Celebration,” “A Different Face of Diversity” and a few of his most irrelevant, biting prose/poetry meanderings such as the “Unforgiven.”

Karen Faris, poet, writer, and mixed media artist based in Rochester, will read from her 2020 chapbook, The Death of Compassion, as well as present her performance poem, “Sermon From the Mountaintop.”   Karen delivered this work as part of the restaging of Anna Halprin's “The Blank Placard Project” led by Rose Pasquerello Beauchamp from the University of Rochester's Dance and Movement department.
