Mark Twain’s “The War Prayer,” A Call & Response Interpretive Reading by Kiran Chandra
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.
Free with admission to the grounds.
