MOONWORK by A-lan Holt:
Poet and playwright A-lan Holt imagines new worlds for her audience through her intimate writing and performance. In her debut collection Moonwork, she pulls back the covers, literally, on a new relationship, her daughter, and love.
A-lan Holt is a poet and playwright who imagines new worlds for intimate audiences. A former writer at the Public Theater New York, A-lan’s newest play THE BOTTOM OF HEAVEN was developed starring Lupita Nyong’o and Tonya Pinkins. A-lan continues her creative work as the Associate Director of the Institute for Diversity in the Arts (IDA) at Stanford University. At IDA she develops curriculum and programming that explores the relationship between art practice, spiritual practice and social justice. This year, A-lan will premiere two new works, MOONWORK, a collection of poetry published by Candor Arts and INAMORATA (inamoratafilm.com), a new film produced by TRUEMVMNT.
