Performance Artist Shonnese C.L. Coleman & Poet NuNuu + Open Mic - Oct. 3
The Inspired Word presents two powerhouses, performance artist Shonnese C.L. Coleman and spoken word poet NuNuu + our amazing 20-slot open mic open to all types of artists. Hosted by comedian Mike Brown.
Shonnese C.L. Coleman, a graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and The American Musical & Dramatic Academy is an Actor, Writer and Performance Artist. Her written work has been commissioned by numerous organizations including Deeply Rooted Chicago Dance Theatre and The Harlem School of the Arts. She was most recently seen on stage as the Narrator in Def Dance Jam Workshop's production of "Versed in Forgiveness" and in Bay Street Theatres production of "To Kill A Mockingbird" in the role of Calpurnia. Her published books "The Stride of Our Walk...The Root of Our Stand" A Collection of Performance Poetry and "Revelation Art" Poems are available on-line at www.everflowingpoetics.info and stay-tuned for a Winter 2012/2013 release of her poetry CD titled "Precious Time."
Ms. L. Smith aka NuNuu, of Connecticut, is many things: spoken word poet and actress, model and hostess, public speaker and publisher. She’s been writing since childhood, but in 2004 decided the power of words was too important to not share her own. Guided by the Kiswahili words NuNuu (to praise, to glorify, to extol), Safi (pure) and Yah (God), she strives to let the God shine through her words and in her life. A passionate, dynamic artist, she has been featured along the East Coast, in such events as the Springfield Indie Soul Fest (Springfield, MA), the Trinity International Hip Hop Festival (Hartford, CT), and 4 My Sweetz (Brooklyn, NY). She is also the Founder/Editor in Chief of S.L.A.M.M. (Support Local Artists Movement Magazine). For more info, please visit her website at http://www.nunuu.info/.
