Poetry and More in the UUCA Underground Theatre. Featuring:
Morani Bonner – A creator and performer of dramatic spoken word poetry, Morani's art draws from his personal experiences as an advocate for social justice, as a teacher of both gifted and special-needs students, as a survivor of health challenges and homelessness, as a military veteran, as a volunteer supporting victims of domestic violence, and as a loving parent. His work reflects the resilience and triump of the human spirit amid obstacles and tragedy.
Carol Welter – Carol grew up in London where she trained in classical theatre at the Shakespearean Conservatory. She founded "Wine, Cheese & The Spoken Word" at UUCA in April, 2016, and has directed several plays in the Underground Theatre. For three nights next March, the Theatre will present an original play – "About Clarence" -- written, produced and directed by Carol. A preview of "Clarence" will be part of Carol's presentation on Nov. 25, as well as a sampling of her lighthearted rhymes and her more poignant poetic prose.
Open Mic will be held between sets, providing an opportunity for spoken-word artists to share their work in a friendly environment. For additional information about the Open Mic or the Spoken Word series, contact Carol Welter at email@example.com.
