Performetry

The Featured Poet at the December 28 Performetry will be none other than Robert Michael Oliver. You’ve seen him perform any number of classic poems, from Whitman to Poe to Keats. Now, come see him perform a selection of his own works in his own unique performative style. Oliver in Eureka2

As a special treat, Performetry will offer its first audience participation, improvisational poem, based on our hopes for the new year, personal, local, and national. This audience participation experiment will give audience a taste of what the new year at Performetry will inspire.

We will also use this Performetry as an opportunity to celebrate the birthday of co-founder Elizabeth Bruce. No gifts required, of course, just your best wishes.

As always, we conclude our Feast of Words and Poetry with an Open Mic, so bring your most compelling “family friendly” works of song, short prose, or poems.

Performetry runs from 6:00 to 8:00 at BloomBars, 3222 11th Street, NW, Washington, DC. Free on street parking can be found in that neighborhood, but come a little early to find your space.

Homemade Tomato SoupThis winter feast will have our usual soup and freshly baked bread, as well as a special vegan dessert.

We ask for a suggested donation of $10 to support the good work of BloomBars – A Community-Oriented Arts Center
