Sundays@4 is Baton Rouge Gallery’s most diverse program, offering more than a dozen performances/readings from top-notch local authors, musicians, dance troupes, poets and more. Always free, always open to the public and always starting at 4pm, these intimate engagements give you an up close look at what local writers and performers are working on. Here’s what’s coming up next at Sundays@4:
NOVEMBER 22 - POET DENNIS FORMENTO TO READ AT SUNDAYS@4
"Music and art can confront and free us from the mind and spirit prison because they get us out of the cerebral chatter of the frontal lobes and allow our feelings to change instantaneously."
The author of eight chapbooks and two full-length collections of poetry, he has read at the prestigious Venice Biennale and at Locanda Hermann in Rome. Formento also studied with the founders of beat poetry and its followers, namely Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman and Diane di Prima.
