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.

Born in the ancient town of Licodia Eubea, near Catania, Sicily, he immigrated with his family to the United States at age nine. Teacher, polyartist, sonosopher, Caldiero makes things that appear as language or pictures or music, or then again, as the shape of your own mind. He is a maker of text-sound and visual works, installations, and publications, including Sound Weave with Theta Naught (Differential Records), Poetry Is Wanted Here! (Dream Garden Press), Some Love (Signature Books), and Sonosuono (Elik Press).
