Below are the latest photographs from rehearsals, this time at the performance space, Musicasa.
On 4 May 2019, Ivy Alvarez tutors for The Kitchen, a writing workshop series centred around coming together in each other’s kitchens to share stories.
Ivy Alvarez’s poem features in Volume Six of Aotearotica. Guest edited by Monica Macansantos, she writes,
In Satisfaction, Auckland-based poet Ivy Alvarez explores the intersections of eating and sex, depicting the act of eating a mango (the quintessential Filipino fruit) as a fundamentally sensual experience that, like sex, does not have to transcend its physicality to be profound in its revelations.
Copies of Volume Six are available here.
Aileen I. Cassinetto (Poet Laureate of San Mateo County, CA) and Ivy Alvarez (Auckland, New Zealand) feature on Your Artsy Girl, hosted by Cristina Querrer.
This episode also receives a mention in Cristina Querrer’s 29 April interview with Radio Public: “The second most pivotal episode was when I recorded two poets from opposite sides of the world at the same time! Aileen Cassinetto was in California and Ivy Alvarez was in New Zealand.”
