POETRY LIVE(S)


Play Movie
POETRY LIVE(S) introduces us to the lively diversity of practicing poets --- young, old, men, women, novices and veterans, black and white. Who are these people declaring themselves poets? Why do they rant and chant? What drives them to share their words and worlds with us? Performances on stage and off combined with interviews and an original score by Conni St. Pierre give an intimate look at the life and work of spoken-word poets today.
