Special Event: 4th Annual Sistahood Women's Invitational Poetry Slam

Featuring Toronto's Amanda Hiebert and Krystle Mullin with your host, Rachel Flood.
Monday, March 13th
9:00pm - 11:30pm
Cafe Deux Soleils: 2096 Commercial Drive
Once again the Sistahood Festival and the Vancouver Poetry Slam are teaming up for the Sistahood Women's Invitational Poetry Slam.

As a spoken word poet, Amanda has been on the Toronto Poetry Slam Team six years running. As part of the Toronto Poetry Slam Team, she has toured across Canada and the United States performing in high school’s, drop in centre’s, libraries and live music venues. Since 2003, she has performed over a hundred shows in the Greater Toronto Area. She has also been featured on CBC’s ‘Wordbeat’ and the University of Toronto’s ‘CIUT’ hosted by Nik Beat.
Amanda is also a playwright and actress and has performed her work across Canada.

Krystle Mullin’s distinct raspy voice may well be taller than she is (she stands only 5’3) but a lack of vertical height hasn’t stopped this spoken word artist from reaching unimaginable heights in a short period of time. She has been performing for just over a year and has already toured across Canada, been a member of the Toronto Slam Team and implemented a program that integrates spoken word poetry into Ontario high schools. Krystle’s style and rhythm borrows from folk, hip-hop, and hillbilly practicalities.

Also performing are Radar, Julie Parrell, Sasha Langford, Shannon Rayne, Fran Bourassa, Nadia Chaney, Sara Bynoe, Nora Smithhisler, Missie Peters, Olivia Berger-Hawthorne, Susan Cormier and Jill Binder.

Tickets are $10 at the door. This night will sell out so get there early the night of. It'll rock like no rock has ever rolled before.

There will be a short open mic before the slam starting at 8:30.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
