    WORLD OF WORDS: QUEENS

    When: Apr 12 2014

    Where: Little Theatre

    WORLD OF WORDS: QUEENS 

    A forward-moving celebration of Queens Literary Arts 

    Hosted & Curated by Audrey Dimola 

     

    Saturday, April 12th, 3-5:30pm

    Little Theatre at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center

    31-10 Thomson Ave, Long Island City

     

    Exploratory, emotional, ecstatic – these Queens locals and Queens supporters will share their stories with all the vibrancy and authenticity this borough is known for. Wit, rawness, passion, humor, and honesty: this is WORLD OF WORDS.

     

    Live onstage in LaGuardia Performing Arts Center‘s 200-seat Little Theatre, local writers/poets and performers – some of whom appeared in the first ever Queens Literary Town Hall at Queens Council on the Arts and the Queens Poet Laureate’s ETERNiDAY festival at Queens Museum – will share their expressions in a variety of literary mediums interspersed with multi-disciplinary interludes, including poetry, storytelling, music, dance, video, theatre, spoken word, and literature in translation.
