Add to calendar

A free event featuring all women artists from diverse cultural backgrounds will take place on June 20. This Women’s History Month event had to be rescheduled due to inclement weather back in March. Please join us now for the summer solstice to hear each woman tell her own unique “her-story.”

Be transported to India with a classical dance performance by Three Aksha Dance Company. Feel the rhythms of the Japanese “taiko” drumming ensemble Kyo Daiko. Angi Vita is a live painter who will use the body as a “living canvas.” Singer-songwriter Lydia Swaray will create music influenced by West African folk traditions. Sonnie Shine and musical guests will provide an earthy combination of soul, funk, jazz and folk. And Plum Dragoness will perform a unique presentation of spoken-word “flowetry” and movement arts.

There is always an open mic and open stage portion to the Poet-tree En Motion events. Everyone is welcome to sign up and perform, and all types of arts and media are welcome.

“I’m trying to do something different that’s not just an open-mic night,” de Burke says. “I like when there’s a range of performances at the events.

“The whole thing is a ritual: the coming together of the performers and the audience. I am down with everyone coming together and participating the way they feel. Throughout all of the events, there is an engagement in the community.”
