“Shadows Crossing: Tones of Voice Continued,” a lecture by Cedar Sigo

Bagley Wright Lecture Series

The Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry, in partnership with the CalArts MFA Creative Writing Program, presents acclaimed Suquamish poet Cedar Sigo. Extending from his many publications, such as Royals and Language Arts, and his contributing editorship to the forthcoming Norton Anthology of Native American Poetry, Cedar’s lecture “Shadows Crossing: Tones of Voice Continued” asks, How have qualities of voice become unlocked and sustained throughout both ancient and contemporary practice? Discussing components of singing, storytelling and texts by visual artists, through works by Charles Reznikoff, Joy Harjo, Eileen Myles, Pitseolak Ashoona, Gertrude Stein, dg nanouk okpik, and Philip Guston, Cedar will uncover the acoustic aspects of the poetic line and chart the shadows and tones of its underlying cosmos.
