Monday April 29th! CANDY ROYALLE on tour from AUSTRALIA! Plus the U.N. of Poetry Country Guess Challenge!

Still trying for a 9pm start!

Help us end national poetry month here in the U.S. with yet another international guest poetry superstar! 

candyroyalle Originally a performance poet, CANDY ROYALLE has expanded across artistic boundaries with collaborative works that have seen her teaming up with photographers, film makers, visual artists and musicians. Most recently she has layered her rhythmic words and hypnotic voice with the unique sounds of funk, jazz and soul trio Sloppy Joe for their collaborative work “Stories by Starlight” which was nominated for the Sydney Fringe Festival Music Award. This builds on her experience working with both classical and contemporary musicians, including members of the London Symphony Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Australian Chamber Orchestra. Another recent collaboration was a commissioned work which saw Royalle’s words photographed on the shadow-lit bodies of nude models. Royalle also bends genres by integrating sound effects using FX and loop pedals in her candyroyalle2performances. Royalle’s career has taken her across both the frontiers of performance art, and the world. She’s captivated audiences internationally, including Spain, the UK and America. In Australia, Royalle is a festival veteran. Her one-woman show ‘Love Spectacular’ sold-out at Sydney’s first Fringe Festival where it was nominated for the “Show-stopping Individual Performance Award” and continued to win rave reviews at Melbourne’s Midsumma Festival and the Adelaide Fringe. Royalle’s work has been covered in many major media outlets including Fairfax, News Limited, CNN and a host of local and street press. Check out
