SPECIAL EVENT - The Inspired Word Presents Verbal Measures: Voices from the Edge - Oct. 11
The Inspired Word presents another in its series of special events: Verbal Measures: Voices from the Edge, featuring six dynamic performance artists - spoken word poet Simone Davis, writer/actor Shepsa, actor/poet Juan Reyna, actor Marisol Demonte, Hip Hop MC/poet Pyro, and writer Anabelle Gonzalez.
Straight from their mouths to your senses, these storytellers present character-driven monologues spoken with a poetic twist. With stories of love to Alzheimer’s to a dangerous game of hide-and-seek, these poignant artists will propel you to enchanted places and beyond - brought to you from the streets of Brooklyn, la frontera de Texas, a Philly home, the campos of the Dominican Republic and the California coastline.
This is a rich, spicy gumbo of voices, so prepare your palette for this paella of poetic discourse from the edge.
