Laylage Courie

I am a writer and maker-of-things-from-words who has worked for decades in the experimental theater scene in New York. I trained in the Roy Hart vocal tradition-- a European post WWI style which teaches an un-gendered, human voice that is the "muscle of the soul". I use the full range of my voice, poetic text, beats built from words on a midi-keyboard, field recordings, and whatever else makes an imprint on my imagination--to tell dream-like, mythical stories that I hope take you places in your own mind.

I regularly render strange readings of poetry (my own and the likes of T.S. Eliot, Mark Strand, Adrienne Rich, Gregory Orr...) on my sporadic podcast: Cosmic Dream Radio. My writing has been published in _The Open Page_, _How2_, _2RiverView_, _Fence_, _Adbusters_, has been seen in the NY Fringe Festival, at Bowery Poetry Club, Dixon Place, Little Theater, North American Cultural Laboratory, among other places. I was a finalist for the Jane Chambers Award for Feminist Performance Text, and received funding from the Axe-Houghton Foundation.

I have so much more coming. Stay tuned.
