DARK MONDAY: Sunflower Skeleton by Allen Ginsberg
In June, NEAT presents Sunflower Skeleton by Allen Ginsberg. The project features lesser-known poetry by the late Beat poet and brings together two works of especial interest as they form the bookends to his long career – Sunflower Sutra, written in 1955, one of his early startling poems, and The Ballad of the American Skeleton, written in 1995, his last fully realized project; a collaboration with Paul McCartney and Philip Glass.
Allen Ginsberg was one of the founding fathers of a major literary movement popularly known as the Beat Generation and is considered one of the 20th century’s most revolutionary and influential poets. He defies classification; poet, musician, songwriter, photographer, champion of human and civil rights, world traveler, spiritual seeker, political gadfly.
NEAT is a non-profit organization that has been doing shows for over 29 years. The theatrical society presents theatergoers with uncompromised presentations of Anglophone theatre and culture.
