Steven Donald Dalachinsky was an American downtown New York City poet, where he lived with wife, painter, and poet Yuko Otomo, and both were long time fixtures at cultural happenings and gatherings of all kinds in Lower Manhattan and beyond, active in the music, art, and free jazz scenes. He wrote poetry for most of his life and read frequently at Michael Dorf's club the Knitting Factory, the Poetry Project and the Vision Festival, an Avant-jazz festival held annually on the Lower East Side of New York City. Dalachinsky also read his works in Japan, France and Germany. Dalachinsky worked with such musicians as William Parker, Susie Ibarra, Roy Campbell, Daniel Carter, Sabir Mateen, Mat Maneri, Federico Ughi, Loren Mazzacane Connors, Rob Brown, Tim Barnes and Jim O'Rourke. As a performing poet, he played and recorded with the likes of Joe McPhee, Loren Connors, Dave Liebman and Matthew Shipp. Dalachinsky was also the author of numerous books including A Superintendent’s Eyes, The Final Nite & Other Poems, and Where Night and Day Become One. “An inspired conversationalist, Dalachinsky was beloved by the avant-garde community for his cantankerous wit, frank sense of humor, generous compassion, and love of music, especially free jazz.” Steve Dalachinsky’s poetry will be featured in the exclusive world première of Spring Street and the full performance can be watched here on Saturday 24th July 2021. Inspired by life on Spring Street, Manhattan – setting the poetry of Steve Dalachinsky and Yuko Otomo to music by Pete Wyer – wildly eclectic like the street itself.
