Lindsey Boldt & Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves

The poems of Lindsey Boldt and Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves move in suspended states of unknowing, of learning, not for the power of accumulating and organizing static information, but for the magic of communicating with and through enveloping mysteries that refuse death and embrace life on this wild Earth.

Lindsey Boldt is a poet, songwriter, playwright, and devotee of all things impromptu and playful, particularly Poets Theater. She is the author of the poetry collection, Weirding, from Dogpark Collective, the novella, Overboard, from Publication Studio, and several chapbooks including Titties for Lindsey and There Are No Cops in America and the Streets are Paved w/ Cheese. She works as editorial director of Nightboat Books and lives in Olympia, Washington on Squaxin and Nisqually land.

Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves is an artist guided by metaphysics, network science, ethnobotany, and the granular analytics of poetic inquiry. Supporters include Rauschenberg Residency, Artists Space, Issue Project Room, Montez Press at Matthew NYC, Wendy’s Subway, The Poetry Project, 4 Columns, Hyperallergic, Belladonna*, Kore Press, Ugly Duckling Presse, and Brown University.

This is tentatively planned as a live indoor event at St. Mark's Church. We are following guidelines laid out by the CDC and the State of New York. These include: limiting the number of attendees; requiring proof of vaccination be shown at the door upon arrival; and requiring and providing face masks, as well as hand sanitizer stations. Before each event, we will also be conducting rapid tests for all performers, introducers, and hosts.. Attendees are required to register in advance, and contact information is collected at the point of registration in the event that we need to support any public health efforts around contact tracing. We are committed to the safety of our performers, audience, and event staff, and will be fully prepared to update any of these plans and protocols as circumstances continue to evolve. We are grateful to attendees for helping us maintain safety within our present public health context, and look forward to holding meaningful shared listening space together.

Please arrive prepared to show proof of vaccination and a photo ID at the door. Proof of vaccination may be in the form of your vaccination card (or a picture of your card), the NYC Covid Safe app, or the Excelsior app. If, for medical reasons, you have not been vaccinated, you may instead bring documentation of a negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours. We also encourage all event attendees to take a rapid test the day of the event before heading to the churchHere’s a map of testing sites throughout the city.
