Alex Caldiero's Who is the dancer, What is the dance



Who is the dancer, What is the dance is based on a pocket journal that poet Alex Caldiero kept with him during a six-day river trip on the Colorado River through Cataract Canyon. In these poems, and the reproduced drawings that accompany, and often house, them, Caldiero explores how we simultaneously impinge upon, and give ourselves over to, a landscape. In these poems, our urban preconceptions falter and adapt to these places we call wild.


...out to create a conversation about and with Nature, through art and an intercorporeal reaching out—branch to hand, soul to soul—with much success.
