Agitprop Reading Series featuring Rozalie Hirs: Saturday, May 8, 7 p.m.

We hope you can join us this Saturday, May 8 at 7pm for a reading and performance by Rozalie Hirs, an interdisciplinary writer and musician from the Netherlands.

Rozalie Hirs (pictured above with Jaap Blonk) is a prolific interdisciplinary artist whose work incorporates music, text and video. Her work has performed throughout Europe and the United States. Her three books of poetry are Locus (1998), Logos (2002) and Speling (2005, all Querido Publications). She also wrote the libretto for the opera The Cricket Recovers by Richard Ayres. Rozalie Hirs' recent composition "Roseherte," (2008) for full orchestra and electro-acoustic sounds was premiered by the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and selected for the Toonzetters prize in 2009. Her electro-acoustic composition “Pulsars” (2006, 2007 rev.), commissioned by CafĂ© Sonore, VPRO Radio, Netherlands, received the distinction “Recommended work” at the 11th International Rostrum of Electroacoustic Music (IREM) in 2007. A CD, Pulsars, with electroacoustic music and text pieces by Rozalie Hirs will appear in 2010 as a co-production of Attacca records and Muziekcentrum Nederland.
