Clattering Loom is a themed reading co-curated by Valerie Chavez and Jonathan Hirsch. Each reading centers around a single un-translatable word or phrase from a language other than English. The contributors to the reading are then asked to write something that reaches towards a definition of the phrase in the language of their particular discipline and experience.
Clattering Loom has featured a broad range of authors and musicians since its inception in 2011. Stay tuned for more exciting performances and collaborations in 2013, in San Francisco and beyond.
