SEXTON AT THE FRINGE


Hannah Wolfe
-- a very talented and charming actress/writer/entrepreneur/producer/impressario -- and WildChild are presenting Her Kind, a mixed media piece about Anne Sexton, at the New York Fringe Festival. They have been working and developing this piece for some time. (I posted on an earlier performance of this piece last year.)

Anne Sexton (1928-1974) was a highly respected poet with a disturbed personality, who ultimately committed suicide. According to
biographical notes in Wikipedia, she was encouraged by her therapist to begin writing poetry. She was close with W. D. Snodgrass whose confessional poetry was a source of inspiration. Her own poetry often dealt with feminine and sexual topics and issues more than many other poets of the time.

Her Kind uses dance, film, poetry performance, and recorded readings by Anne Sexton herself.

There is a brief
interview with Hannah on http://www.nytheatrecast.com (Episode #147 - Indie Theatre Now). Her segment is at the end of this podcast.
