LARISSA SHMAILO has been published in Newsweek, Ratapallax, Lungfull!, American Translators' Slavfile, and other publications. She has read at numerous colleges, for the Writers' Harvest against Hunger, with the Black Panthers, and on WBAI and WNYE among many other venues. She has received "Critic's Pick" notices for her appearances from the New York Times, the Village Voice, and Time Out magazine.
Larissa is the creator and host of the Sliding Scale Poetry series, which introduced many of today's most popular young poets. She translated the Russian Futurist opera Victory Over The Sun by A. Kruchenych, performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival, and exhibited in video at the Los Angeles County Museum and the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C.
FROM THE PEDESTAL MAGAZINE: Listening to poet and translator Larissa Shmailo's latest spoken word CD is almost like attending eighteen short plays in the span of forty minutes. Like the best plays, each poem tells a compelling story of human struggle, in which characters fight (and routinely fail) to obtain such basic necessities as food, shelter, liberty, even love. Like the best plays, her poems also crackle with breathtaking language, which in the true tradition of the tragedies of which she speaks almost sound as if they could be sung (indeed, in some cases they almost are).
This is where Larissa Shmailo comes in. Her poetry CD, The No-Net World (produced by SongCrew Records) brilliantly puts humanity on notice-battling personal economic disaster, crises of the heart, even a trip back in time to her family's incarceration in a Nazi concentration camp-all dramatically rendered in a dazzling display of multilingual virtuosity.
Larissa Shmailo reads like a skilled performance poet, writes like an angel, and delivers insights--from the erotic to the political--that would burn most poets if they dared touch them.
