Amy Everhart Added to Hullabaloo 2013
Last year, Amy Everhart came up to the Vancouver Poetry Slam and blew everyone out of their seats. Now, we’re going to have her back! She’ll be featuring at Hullabaloo 2013 Team Finals Night and conducting workshops throughout the week.
Amy Everhart has been called one of “America’s most refreshing Poetic Voices”, a whirling-dervish of a performer whose voice sucker punched itself into the National Consciousness when she made history in Berkley California by being the first Woman to ever win the Individual World Poetry Slam 2009, the most highly coveted title in United States performance poetry. An organic and powerful performer, Amy has been a 4-time member of the legendary Denver Mercury Cafe Slam Team, a member of Denver Slam Nuba, Portland Poetry Slam, and 2-time city wide champion. Amy Everhart has been published in multiple Denver poetry anthologies and is the Author of 3 Chapbooks, (In Truth, Exchanging Guilty Pleasures For Honesty, and Great, Now Everyone has Mad Cow), as well as one CD entitled I’d Rather Be.
“To watch Amy Everhart perform is a physical act, a naturally gifted writer who literally decimates herself on stage, a tiny prometheus with poems like eagles that tear her apart. As an audience member, you cannot escape the feeling that the newly found clarity gained by seeing her, shines just a bit like stolen fire”
“She moves and speaks as if she is equal parts conductor and virtuoso violinist. Like a conductor she directs and moves her listener with subtle, gentle nudges, instead of forcing, she coerces you into a state of believing anything is possible.” ~Ed Mabrey, 2007 Individual World Poetry Slam Champion
