Icarus in the L.E.S. is a kaleidoscopic performance-poem delivered from the final bastions of the New York vanguard. The performance centers on the wax-winged hero – who did not die when he fell from the sky, but instead lives on – chasing his destiny and scouting out the divide between artistic achievement and personal happiness. Taken under the wings of a mystical literati including The Silent Janitor, Bernardo, and The Severed Head of Homer, the poet, Icarus, must ford the rivers of the underworld to his final showdowns with both his nemesis, Rodney Cheshire Clemenceau, and himself. Presented as a teched-out poetry reading, and brimming with sound and video design culled from the most psychically-charged bits of city living, the poem is performed by the soulful and unendingly charismatic Ronald Peet.
