Join us at Le Petit Versailles, a public community garden in the East Village, where fragments and minor moments will converge in film, painting, performance, cyanotype photos and poetry. Together, poet Lee Ann Brown, painter Mable Ting, performer Tony Torn, photographer Accra Shepp, and filmmakers Mark Street and Lynne Sachs interpret the word flutter in an attempt to live in the space between the tangible and the ineffable. A paean to the possibly overlooked and the definitively forgotten. 

Lee Ann Brown and Tony Torn – The Green Play: a poets play written for John Ashbery by Lee Ann Brown, performed by Lee Ann Brown and Tony Torn

Mable Ting – Motion Picture (with Nelson Kim) a time-lapse video record of a painting being created.
