Our second session of word, revisited will feature Slam Champion Dionna Vereen.

In her work, Vereen tends to curiously explore the intrinsic sensuality, physicality, and musicality within language (and outside of it). She is also fascinated with the transactional relationships between language, the human body & the human condition. These pieces specifically delve into concepts such as the power of attentiveness in language, care for fellow humans, the power of the individual’s voice, the effect of society’s images on our children of color, and the deeply sensual, rhythmic, and luminescent spheres of language and love.

After the featured speaker’s program, there is an open mic portion of the evening in which audience members can share some of their own written work.

Word, revisited is held on the second and fourth Thursday of every month, through November 14. Doors open at 5:30, program begins at 6:00. Admission is $3.

Word, revisited is a collaborative program of the Cayuga Museum, Olive Trees, a local literary magazine, and aaduna, an online adventure with words and images.
