Many artists have adapted Edgar Allan Poes masterpieces over the years into varied art forms - music, stage productions, films, and even cartoons. The legendary 19th-century authors life and works continues to inspire young artists today. On Monday, November 26, at 7 p.m., New York University students artists from the Tisch School of the Arts and the Gallatin School of Individualized Study present a special cabaret event, PoeMotion II: The Sights & Sounds of Edgar Allan Poe. This event follows their first successful Poe cabaret held in spring 2007. Free and open to the public, it takes place at the NYU Kimmel Center, Shorin Auditorium (room 802), 60 Washington Square South (at LaGuardia Place). For more information and to make reservations, call 212.998.6943.
The cabaret will feature original pieces, including dance, drama, music, and animation, to illuminate Poes masterful poetics, arresting images, and the lingering legacy of his own mysterious life.
PoeMotion is sponsored by the NYU Office of Government and Community Affairs, Tisch Talent Guild, and Adrienne Goldberg, Community Director, Poe Room.
