I just performed spoken word, last Downtown (Los Angeles) Artwalk, on the Hippodrome--a mural painted historic bus that is now the "shuttle" that runs 15 minute loops through Gallery Row and beyond for the patrons of the walk. Since I perform with my pet python, the curators of the bus suggested I come up with something WW1, to honor the freak-show snakes that were displayed on Main Street at that time. I immediately thought of the Dada movement, and set out to do a piece on this. I managed to find a translation of Tzara's Manifeso online, and preceded to painstakingly edit it down to about half, trying hard to preserve the essence of the piece.
