Spoken Word Night

Thursday, October 7, 2021
@ The Art Garage | 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
For sign-up, contact Cujo Host MC at cujohiphop@gmail.com

What makes reading poetry or speaking words different from "Spoken Word"? One key element is feeling. Spoken Word is about bringing poetry to life through emphasis, intonation, inflection...for lack of a better word - performance! Striving to help the listener feel how you felt writing your piece. Attempting to transport the listener to another headspace so they don't just hear your words but become part of the story. Once we get into each others heads we might find out that we have more in common than we thought.  All levels and abilities are welcome to participate in the spoken word experience. Come alone or with a group to speak or just to watch! The event is open to any and all who would like to perform. Solo and group acts may include, but are not limited to, music, improv, stand-up comedy, poetry, skits, or magic. The Art Garage is a family-friendly venue, so all content must be acceptable for all ages. 
About the MC: Cujo is a spoken word/hip-hop artist who aims to demonstrate that poetry in particular has the unique ability to offer people the experience of common understanding, empathy and acceptance which are all pillars of a healthy community and a healthy individual mindset alike.
