The Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Hip Hop Poetry Open Mic is one of the most fun and wildly unpredictable events in the region. Hip hop over to the Black Swan Theater on April 6, at 7:00 p.m., and hear featured poet Ashland High graduate Clementine von Radics. Von Radics is an internationally touring poet and performer. Her work has been adapted by composer Stephen Schwartz into a song cycle debuting at Carnegie Hall in 2016, and her latest book, “Mouthful of Forevers,” is a no. 1 new release on Amazon.com. She is a graceful and strong performer, with thoughtful and fearless poems.
Check out her performance from this year’s Martin Luther King celebration in Ashland.
Following her performance, the open mic portion offers a rich mix of poets, musicians and all kinds of cool local talent. Arrive a little early and sign up to share your work.
The OSF’s vibrant, local poetry slam is a perfect way to celebrate National Poetry Month.
