Come join the show in welcoming Haitian-American powerhouse Lenelle Moïse who is an award-winning poet, playwright, essayist, composer and nationally-touring performance artist. She creates intimate, fiery, politicized, texts about the intersection of race, class, gender, sexuality, spirituality, culture and resistance. Her hip-hop bred, jazz-infused delivery is at once conversational and polished. Fueled by the motto “Words rouse worlds,” she regularly presents interactive performances and workshops that empower diverse groups of people to creatively speak up and act for social change. Equipped with an MFA from Smith College, Moïse has been a guest artist at the United Nations, the Culture Project, the Louisiana Superdome, the Omega Institute and dozens of theatres, colleges and conferences across the United States and Canada. Curve Magazine calls her poetry CD Madivinez "piercing, covering territory both intimate and political...vivid and powerful." Her critically-acclaimed Off-Broadway play, Expatriate inspired her second CD The Expatriate Amplification Project, an all-vocal, poly-rhythmic, urban fusion of jazz, funk and soul. Moïse's writing is published in a number of anthologies, including Word Warriors: 35 Women Leaders in the Spoken Word Revolution, We Don't Need Another Wave: Dispatches from the Next Generation of Feminists and Brassage: An Anthology of Poems by Haitian Women. She is the 2010-2012 Poet Laureate of Northampton, MA and an avid ribbon-collector.
