Fleshy interface: how to live in another body for an hour
For Fleshy Interface the writer Quinn Latimer delivers a lecture-performance on the erotic act of reading for and breathing with an audience for an hour — or, likely, less. Her lecture takes its title from a seventiesera Thomas James poem in which the then young American poet noted: “For our own private reasons / We live in each other for an hour. / Stranger, I take your body and its seasons, / Aware the moon has gone a little sour / For us. The moon hangs up there like a stone / Shaken out of its proper setting.” With her reading, Latimer will attempt to shake us out of our proper setting, like some loose moon, that cheap jewel.
