TORONTO POETRY SLAM FEATURING SPILLIOUS FROM VANCOUVER

March 31 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

We’re back with our second slam of the regular season, this time featuring the Vancouver Grand Champ on tour throughout Ontario SPILLIOUS!

Spillious, the 2017 Grand Slam Champion of the Vancouver Poetry Slam, is a Trans-feminine poetic creature from Vancouver Canada. They are sometimes loud, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and always brutally honest. They touch on what it is to be queer, Trans femme, a father and an educator all at the same time. Spillious is also a musician, father, high school music teacher, workshop facilitator and academic. They have been performing spoken word for over a decade and have been featured in venues all over Canada and in the US. Their latest book, Tales of Trans-Formation has sold over 100 copies & is now in it’s 2nd printing!

Hosted by Alyssa Ginsburg.

As always, open mic and slam available for anyone who arrives by 730.
