The women star, in La Danza Poetica number 54. Women collectivising and collaborating, creating and producing. Featuring two collections of collaborative works: Reverb on Verse out of Australia put together poets with producers and electronic artists. The Monika Werkstatt double album, out of Berlin, is a brilliant example of what comes from close collaboration. Electronica tracks that together form a dialogue between women artists from around the world.
