Sampler of Annie's Poetry
Annie has been writing plays almost as long as she has been writing poetry. Her book Spells: New and Selected Poems includes selections from five performance works. Her theatrical collaborations have been performed in Amherst, Brooklyn, Cincinnati, San Francisco’s Magic Theater and Theater Artaud, and New York’s Circumference Theater and Carnegie Hall. Annie's multimedia poetic ritual theater collaborations aim to bring poetry back to its primal roots in performed ceremony and rituals of community transformation. Annie has worked in collaboration with directors, actors, composers, singers, musicians, choreographers, dancers, visual artists, maskmakers, puppeteers, and more to develop multifaceted new approaches to theater. Scripts currently available for theatrical production include the epic play about abortion Among the Goddesses, and the ecopoetic multimedia ritual play Wolf Song. Annie is always interested in working with artists in other media to develop new scripts in collaboration.
