I Name This Body MINE: Poetry Night in Ann Arbor

December 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Mendelssohn Theater
911 N University Ave
Ann Arbor, MI 48104

Join us for an inspiring evening of original spoken word poetry and live music by Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti youth artists! Teen poets and musicians from the Neutral Zone will perform along with the featured poets of the evening: Anika Love, Lilly Kujawski, and Ann Arbor Youth Poet Laureate Aldo Leopoldo Pando Girard. The teen performers are working under the guidance of the featured poets for two months of collaborative workshops to generate and polish material. The culmination of these efforts will be a poignant multimedia production not to be missed. The event will also serve as the official release for I Name This Body MINE, a collection of the featured poets’ original work. Book copies will be available for purchase that evening. At the heart of this book and show is reclamation: reclaiming the parts of us that are shamed and silenced, rewriting our trauma narratives, and reshaping our current reality by daring to imagine alternatives thereto. Come dream a new day with us!
Mendelssohn Theater, 911 N. University. $10-$50. jucomora@umich.edu https://conta.cc/2OX5YDl
