Therefore Art, Sound, and Performance Group Presents

Poems for Broken Screens

June 1 – 3, 2023

Hamon Hall

2403 Flora Street, Dallas, TX 75201


Poems for Broken Screens is a transmedia performance art project spanning multiple genres and disciplines. It is an adventurous expression of 21st century poetry, broadly interpreted: the poem as sound, as image, as movement, as media. This ambitious project is an avant-garde interpretation of poetic forms translated through technology and experimental performance.

This performance features Hilly Holsonback and Abel Flores, along with Patrick Murphy on synthesizers and samplers, plus guest artists including local legend Paul Slavens on keys and young talent Kit Presley performing improvisational vocals.

As always, the Therefore experience will include compelling performance art, live video art, projections, and immersive sound.
