Living Writers Series: Neo Benshi
May 26, 2011 @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm | Humanities Lecture Hall, Room 206
Neo Benshi, Roxi Power Hamilton, Jen Hofer and Konrad Steiner present a new take on the Japanese tradition of “benshi”—a writer or actor who provides live narration and commentary alongside films. The neo-benshi concept invites writers/performers to choose scenes from well-known narrative features or TV shows, mute the soundtrack, and re-inscribe the familiar images with new meanings.
Each quarter, the Living Writers Reading Series brings visiting authors and poets to UC Santa Cruz to give students an in-depth look into the world of the working writer. Sponsored by Oakes College and the Porter Hitchcock Poetry Fund.
