In celebration of National Poetry Month, we bring you a double bill of experimental poetry, music, and film that explores the spaces between worlds. We begin with Tanya Evanson — poet, whirling dervish, and director of the Banff Centre’s Spoken Word residency — as she presents Bothism – Experimental Sufi.

 

Bothism is the name of a short video by Evanson and the name of her first published poetry collection, an experimental Sufi text. The two come together on stage for a meditative performance, including Saeed Kamjoo (gheychak & kamancheh), Ziya Tabassian (percussion), and Emod Vafa (Sufi whirling).

 

The evening’s second feature performance is from Kaie Kellough and Jason Sharp — a music/spoken word/poetry duo, known for their remarkable, percussive avant-jazz sound. Together they will explore the liminal space between syllables, sounds, words, and rhythm with live video accompaniment.

This presentation is part of our 2019/20 season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performing arts in preserving culture, spurring social change, and celebrating diversity.
