Poetic Utterance performative evenings will be comprised of a multitude of artists sharing bursts of performance and practice. Poets, movers, sound, and vocal artists will respond to some PLATFORM 2020 curatorial inquiries posed by co-curators Judy Hussie-Taylor and Okwui Okpokwasili.

Each artist will respond to Platform ideas with 10-15 minutes of movement, text, song, sound, or some combination of these. A place to hum, utter, and gesture together.

Part of PLATFORM 2020: Utterances from the Chorus
