A Different Page: Open Creation

September 30 at 12pm

South Lawn Tent, September 30 at 12pm ET.

Introducing A Different Page, a new multidisciplinary storytelling series where writers, dance artists and musicians collaborate to create new performance pieces that explores themes of decolonization and diversity. Each presentation features a different duo of writers and performing artists, who can be seen by audiences rehearsing together on-site during the day before presenting their finished performance that evening. A Different Page is co-curated by Artistic Director of Pratibha Arts, Bageshree Vaze and Another Story Bookshop Events Coordinator Anjula Gogia.

Join multidisciplinary dance artist Emilie Jabouin and acclaimed poet Canisia Lubrin as they combine their artistic expertise. Jabouin is an intuitive dance artist and scholar. Emilie is a knowledge keeper of her Haitian heritage, the folk culture-drumming, singing and dancing forms. Inspired by the dance process of curiosity, Emilie uses her imagination to bridge the gap between research and performance. Lubrin is a writer, poet, editor and professor. Her writing explores social justice and the possibilities of art and language. Originally from St. Lucia, Canisia’s second book, The Dyzgraphxst, investigates diasporic life, and was awarded the OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature.

This is a free outdoor event. Find the venue on the #FestofAuthors22 map here.
