The Poet's Den Gallery and Theater

The Poet's Den Gallery and Theater The Poet’s Den Theater and Gallery is a hidden treasure box nestled in the first floor of our building right in the heart of East Harlem. Nestled in the heart of East Harlem, The Poet's Den Theater and Gallery have established a cultural center for the East Harlem community and beyond to gather and participate in arts enjoyment.
(72)

The founders rescued this once-abandoned building and transformed it into a haven where creative energy abounds and where artists engage in multidisciplinary expressions. The vintage furniture and decor juxtapose a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system to harmonize the theater's old-world-style and charm. This multi-sensory environment is designed to delight audiences with a pleasing and fulfilling entertainment experience. Many theater performances, readings, and poetic expressions have received public acclaim from discerning audiences and media. As well as movies, shorts, documentaries that have also been screened for public and private audiences. The two spaces provide a complete entertainment experience where audiences delight from the live shows or movies offered and then retire to the gallery space for fellowship/networking, exhibit displays and receptions. The gallery offers local, national and international artist opportunities to showcase their work. The Poet's Den is a major institution contributing to the ever-changing landscape of the emerging East Harlem neighborhood.

HOW IMPORTANT ARE THE ARTS IN THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN?

The arts are vital to providing a well-rounded education for children. Students who participate in arts learning experiences often improve their achievements in other realms of learning life.
Students with high arts involvement perform better on standardized achievement tests than students with low arts involvement. Moreover, the high arts-involved students also watch fewer hours of TV, participate in more community service and report less boredom in school.

That is why we love the arts!!!!!

“Last night we had the premiere of a beautiful film at The Poet's Den, at the post reception, the producer asked me how did I enjoy the film, and it took me off guard because I did not watch the film, even though I was in the audience.

I must confess that I enjoy watching the audience reactions to any of the plays, concerts, films etc.

Its amazing to watch human beings in the dark reacting to what’s going on stage. And then I remembered a piece I read by Jane Wagner and it gave me goosebumps”

Here it is:

“Did I tell you what happened at the play? We were at the back of the theatre, standing there in the dark, when all of a sudden I feel one of 'em tug at my sleeve, whispers, "Trudy look!" I said, "Yeah, goosebumps. You definitely got goosebumps. You like the play that much?" They said it wasn't the play that gave 'em goosebumps, it was the audience!

I'd forgot to tell them to watch the play; they'd been watching the audience! Yeah, to see a group of people sitting together in the dark, laughing and crying at the same things...well that just knocked 'em out! They said, "Trudy, the play was soup, the audience, art."

So they're taking Goosebumps back with 'em into space. Goosebumps! Quite a souvenir. I like to think of them out there in the dark, watching us. Sometimes we'll do something and they'll laugh. Sometimes we'll do something and they'll cry. And maybe, one day we'll do something so magnificent, the whole universe will get Goosebumps.”

― Jane Wagner, The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe

SERIES OVERVIEW: TONGUE: A Political Erotic Reading Series, creates a space for queering the erotic, the sensual and the political. This 12 month reading and workshop series lends itself to enhancing the craft of LGBTQI&STR8 poets, writers, visual artist and community members with a place to publish and showcase the performing, visual, written and spoken word. Through communal workshops and monthly readings, TONGUE, embodies an inclusive and challenging space for LGBTQI&STR8 poets, writers and audience members to share with intention, their voice, truths and writing power with Newark. WHAT IS POLITICAL EROTICA: One who takes issue with much of what might be considered traditional morality in the US and creates a distinctly American form of erotic visual performance literature which she or he draws from the different ethnic, religious and cultural strains of our society, creating contrasts of pleasure, desire, celebration of the body and pain as well as guilt, resentment and deprivation. All the long recognizing that this form of writing and visual art has value and is an important part of culture and the human experience where one can easily lose themselves in the erotic fantasies, the imagery and the heat of the prose. TONGUE, takes us to the intersection of our desires and our political beliefs.
