Uther Dean Reads 300 Haiku
A new hour of story-telling from one of the most exciting emerging writers and comedians in the country Uther Dean (Everything is Surrounded by Water, Tiny Deaths, My Fat/Sad, Me and My Sister Tell Each Other Everything).
Poetry and post-modernism, verse and the universe, syllables and the slow decay of nature. Uther Dean Reads 300 Haiku is a tour-de-force of emotion, narrative and, most importantly, haiku. Can we ever make art that reflects what it's really like to be a person? Can the pain of creation ever justify the joy of presentation? Can Uther be trusted to count 5,100 syllables correctly?
