Bodies in Lyric with Tanya Evanson
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 Spoken Web, the Atwater Writers Exhibition, and the Atwater Poetry Project.
January 31st, 4-6 p.m. @ 4TH SPACE, Concordia University
