The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
54. Poetry Four Ways
DINA DEL BUCCHIA, KAIE KELLOUGH, DEBORAH LANDAU, SARA PETERS
Moderator: Billeh Nickerson
Play with tradition in this afternoon of boundary-defying performances with four bold and dynamic poets.
Meet four phenomenal poets unafraid to play with traditions in this afternoon of electric performances. Writers’ Trust nominee Dina Del Bucchia (It’s a Big Deal!) turns her signature wit to the minutiae of the 21st century, hilariously musing on everything from avocado toast to Instagram. Acclaimed audio artist Kaie Kellough bends sound and space in Magnetic Equator, forging new language as his words traverse personal ancestry and distant geography. Celebrated American poet, Deborah Landau’s Soft Targets is a tour-de-force on climate change and political tensions. Stegner fellow Sara Peters’ gut-wrenching, precise poem-prose hybrid I Become a Delight to My Enemies is an experimental meditation of gendered violence and abuse. Reflecting on their singular crafts and reading their irreplicable work, this is a celebration of creativity pushed past its limits.
Suitable for grades 10-12 and adults.
