Bodies in Lyric -- Tanya Evanson on Spoken Word

Oral poetry, storytelling, monologue, slam and experimental sound performance remain at the fringes of the literary world- largely because they lack a critical framework. This talk will examine some current states in spoken word and look at the work of three Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-based artists: Kaie Kellough, Moe Clark and Cat Kidd. We round it all out with a live performance featuring Tanya Evanson on vocals, Jahsun on percussion and Jean-Michel Frédéric on keys. A co-presentation of the Atwater Writers Exhibition, SpokenWeb, and the Atwater Poetry Project. A sister event to the Feb. 1 workshop led by Tanya Evanson, The Page with Ears Open.
