Gabrielle Civil with special guests Douglas Kearney, Miré Regulus, and Sayge Carroll

June 8, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Rain Taxi is pleased to host a book launch for “the deja vu: black dreams and black time” (Coffee House Press) with an evening of performance and poetry by the amazing California-based writer Gabrielle Civil and a handful of her creative comrades from the Twin Cities! Emerging from the intersection of pandemic and uprising, “the déjà vu” activates forms both new and ancestral, drawing movement, speech, and lyric essay into a performance memoir that considers Haitian tourist paintings, dance rituals, race at the movies, Black feminist legacies, and more. With intimacy, humor, and verve, Gabrielle Civil blurs boundaries between memory, grief, and love; then, now, and the future.
