Bob Fosse’s All That Jazz.
If you were a sound:
I wish it was the sound of predawn, but in reality it is probably muted hysteria via violin.
She believes in:
If she could see a social disruption:
America looking in the mirror and seeing China… Can i have two? Cellphones revealed more toxic than cigarettes (and less cool).
Something great she’s read:
Most recently Ben Lerner’s 10:04.
Something great she’s seen:
Most recently Transparent.
Sidney Bechet’s “Blue Horizon,” (also if I’m honest, Ben Lerner’s 1st novel as read by the author, I’m kind of on a Ben Lerner thing right now).
She needs to change:
Posture.. definitely my posture.
Why she makes music:
It is the only language in which i can ever hope for clairvoyance.
Emily’s WILD Wish:
To be truly radical… to be brave.
