In celebration of Poetry Month, Ott & Murphy’s Winery Tasting Room presents the second in the new series of Cabaret entertainments this Friday, April 17 at 7:30 p.m. The series is produced by Judith Walcutt and hosted by David Ossman.
A literary, musical and fantasy, “Cabaret Erotique” focuses on women writers of the Surrealist era, including a scene from “The Taxi,” an erotic ride through Paris by Violette Leduc, poems by proto-Punk Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven and Feminist-Futurist-Dadaist Mina Loy. Local classics scholar Jim Riley will share Sappho’s latest in Greek with translation.
The Menage-a-Quatre Ensemble includes erotic cellist Siri Bardarson, erotic poet-chanteuse Joni Takanikos, erotic novelist Judith Walcutt and eroticized David Ossman, channeling Breton, Neruda and Cummings. Surprise special guests are a promise and audience participation is an option. Cover charge is $10. Reservations recommended; call 360-221-7131. Ott & Murphy Tasting Room is located at 204 First Street in Langley.
