Poetry Night in Canada
Poetry night in Canada is coming to the Victoria Playhouse. Poets will take the audience on a journey through the decades, sharing personal stories of connection, belonging, colonization, freedom and liberation. Accompanied by special musical guests, Poetry Night in Canada will tell a collective story of love and connection to the heartbeat of Mother Earth. Curated by Island poet Julie Bull, Poetry Night in Canada is a celebration of Island poets in response to “150 years since confederation.”
The night will include performances from Epekwitk’s first Mi’kmaq Poet Laureate, Julie Pellisser-Lush, current Poet Laureate, Tanya Davis, with Island poets Julie Bull, King Kxndi, Eberechi Okwuwolu and Softest Spot. Funded in part by Innovation PEI, Poetry Night in Canada is a collaboration between Victoria Playhouse and the PEI Writers’ Guild.
Tickets are pay-what-you-feel and can be purchased at the Box office in person, by calling 1-800-925-2025, or online at victoriaplayhouse.com.
