Oana Avasilichioaei performs a poem from Limbinal at Talon’s spring poetry launch in Vancouver
Oana Avasilichioaei will perform “Thresholds” from Limbinal (Talonbooks) and will take part in the launch of The Thought House of Philippa by Suzanne Leblanc (Bookthug, 2015, translated by Oana Avasilichioaei and Ingrid Pam Dick).
Avasilichioaei’s is a poetry reading like no other: she makes serious use of A/V equipment (a loop station, video, a theramin) to produce an atmospheric and mesmerizing rendering of some of the poems in her new collection, Limbinal, as lines moving hauntingly in a variety patterns and oscillations.
Avasilichioaei is also an accomplished translator, having translated, among other things, Wigrum by Daniel Canty, which Talon published in 2013.
