Kitchen Broadcast is a new livestream performance series taking place every Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm EDT. 

Our artist community has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis through the sudden loss of jobs and presenting opportunities, and we have postponed our previously scheduled Winter/Spring 2020 events. During uncertain times, our commitment to bringing artists and audiences together hasn’t changed, even if the circumstances have. Since gathering at The Kitchen is not currently possible, we have invited artists to connect from their homes to yours, through any form they see fit.

We are happy to welcome you to experience these Kitchen Broadcasts and to join the dialogue around them on our social media channels. To get announcements and updates on the series, follow us on Instagram and Facebook or sign up for our mailing list here.


Recordings of Broadcast Week 4 performances are below.

Tuesday, April 21, 6pm EDT — Ben Vida (PayPal: benjaminvida@gmail.com)


Thursday, April 23, 6pm EDT — Mónica de la Torre (Instagram: @m_de_la_t @nightboat_books)

Mónica de la Torre read from her new book of poetry, Repetition Nineteen , published in March by Nightboat Books. Based on slippages between languages and irreverent approaches to translation, the poems in this collection riff on creative misunderstanding in response to the prevailing political discourse.
