e.e. cummings in music and dance

Loyd Williamson brought his company, the Masque Ensemble, to the Poetry Festival at St. Clement’s, NYC, for three evenings on August 19, 20 and 21, 1979. “Damn Everything But The Circus” was theater involving music, poetry and stylized movement. The poems and “damn everything but the circus” from the play Him by e.e. cummings were performed with the permission of Nancy Anderson. Published by Liveright Publishing.

“Damn Everything But The Circus” played to sold-out crowds in the downstairs Off-Off Broadway theater. The show came back by popular demand for five nights, September 19 through 23, 1979.

Among the poems: “here’s to opening and upward, to leaf and sap” (1935), “I will wade out/till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers” (1925), and “somewhere I have never traveled, gladly beyond” (1931).

The actor/dancers were: Brian Goldstein, Eleonore Prokop and Alan Davidson (who also played the flute). Terence Cartwright performed music by Miriam Charney.

Loyd Williamson conceived and directed this production. He trained with Sanford Meisner and Harold Clurman in New York and specialized in movement work with Anna Sokolow as her assistant for the Washington Arena production of The Dybuk. He taught at HB Studios in New York and was associate professor of movement for the School of the Performing Arts, Rutgers University, New Jersey.
