Back by popular demand! The Flow Chart Foundation’s annual A Night of Neo-Benshi! features a new cavalcade of one-night-only performances of original words performed live to clips from classic films (plus an original short film). 

This year, Charles Bernstein, Samantha Hunt, Paolo Javier, Dorothea Lasky, Kamikaze Jones, and Dawn Lundy Martin are among the poets and artists to offer newfangled reimaginings of clips from films such as the Kubrick horror classic The Shining (1980), Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable in It Happened One Night (1934), Village People disco extravaganza Can’t Stop the Music (1980), and Get Christie Love (1974).

Official Lineup:
Dorothea Lasky — The Shining
Samantha Hunt — Eyes Without a Face
Dawn Lundy Martin — Get Christie Love
Paolo Javier — Monty & Turtle (an original film)
Charles Bernstein — It Happened One Night
Kamikaze Jones — Can’t Stop the Music (the Village People movie)
