DTES suite / burials underfoot — a furious journey with Q Lawrence

February 03, 2021

While traveling from a transit station to the Downtown East Side, Q Lawrence recites their harsh, imagistic, creatively profane poetry and plunges the listener into darkness. Follow the route Q takes in their wheelchair and hear their morbidly beautiful musings, which have the power to disturb, but also to provoke empathetic reflection. This work may be brief, but in its density and suggestive force, it contains volumes.

The following audio might contain content that may be harmful or traumatizing to some audience.

Q Lawrence was previously involved in the Youth Academy as part of PuSh’s Youth Program — an initiative for emerging artists.
