Nkosi Nkululeko + Jasmine Gibson
When two emerge at opposite ends of the forest at the same time they are in alignment. They are not the same, they are aligned. They are at the opposite ends of a line. The line is time or the line is geography or the line is a body or the line is a finger. Alignment is a reading series seeking to create relations, clashes, or comaraderies that would not otherwise have occasion. Two readers at different points. The difference is age is medium is location is race is gender is sexuality or the difference is a secret. Readers could be strangers, idols, or opponents. The difference creates a question. The difference creates a mistake. The difference creates alignment.
An opportunity to create something new, challenge their idea of medium, or unearth a piece from their own archive, Alignment welcomes experimentation by providing 30-45 minutes to each reader.
