Naked poetry alert! Victoria’s Tongues of Fire return with Poetry in the Raw

Poet Missie Peters on the upcoming Tongues of Fire Fundraiser: Poetry in the Raw

Poetry in the Raw: Poetry in Motion

Poets baring their soul…and a whole lot more

It’s spoken with emotion. It’s spoken in motion. It’s spoken naked.

It’s the fourth annual Poetry in the Raw, Victoria’s award-winning nude poetry show featuring ten poets bravely baring their bodies and their souls as they perform original works of startling intensity.

Poetry in the Raw 2010 combines words and motion, with an all-star line-up including performances from Ingrid Hansen of SNAFU Dance Theatre, members of the Vancouver Slam Team and the Victoria Slam Team as well as body-themed treats by Solstice Cafe and tunes by DJ Dodd.

Poetry in the Raw is a fundraiser to help send the Victoria Slam Team to the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Ottawa. Last year Victoria hosted this prestigious event, bringing over 70 spoken word artists to Victoria. The Victoria Slam Team 2010 is Dave Morris, Megan Ann Ward, Matthew Christopher Davidson, Jeremy Loveday and Stephen Thompson.

Not Your Grandma’s Poetry Productions creates innovative events featuring emerging spoken word artists. In February 2011 Not Your Grandma’s Poetry will produce the Victoria Spoken Word Festival.

Tongues of Fire is a Victoria-based spoken word community. Since 2004 Tongues of Fire has held bi- monthly open mic shows with features at the Solstice Cafe. It supports all forms of spoken word, especially raw.
