Books, Bands, and Burlesque Dancing

Catherynne M. Valente read from her new novel, The Habitation of the Blessed, at the basements floor of Brooklyn’s WORD Bookstore. But what was unique about this event – even for the author – was that it incorporated dancing and music throughout her reading.

Valente has organized multimedia events before, using music and dancing alongside reading her work, but never all three at the same time. By mixing burlesque and belly dancing with band music and the spoken word, she not only wanted showcase different artists but introduce people to a new way of experiencing literature.

For this reading, Valente worked with the band Brian Francis Slattery and the West Constantinople Squeezebox All-Stars as well as dancers: Jezebel Wood, Mary Cyn and Katie Lennon.
