Call & Response artist Kiran Chandra presents an interpretive reading of Mark Twain’s controversial 1905 text “The War Prayer.” When Samuel Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was a resident in Wave Hill House at the beginning of the 20th century, he built a treehouse on the property. Chandra’s reading commemorates Twain’s tree structure and the writing he created at Wave Hill. It will be performed in front of her outdoor installation.
