James Wilkes / Andrea Leonessa / Emma Bennett / Ariadne Radi Cor / SJ Fowler / Alessandro Burbank

Crossing Voices was an exchange between six English and Italian poets and performers in May 2014. We worked together for three days at Ca’Foscari University in Venice, developing inter-(and extra-)lingual modes of collaboration, making strange noises and eating some really excellent food. We were generously hosted by Alessandro Mistrorigo and Phonodia Lab.

SJ Fowler blogs about the project here.
