The poetic voices of Los Angeles will be heard through a spoken-word performance, entitled Along the Hyphen, comprised of four diverse poets and a group of musical artists, who will examine life along some of the many hyphens of identity in Los Angeles – Korean, Jewish, Filipina, Latin, and African-American. Performance poet, educator, and community arts activist, Kamau Daáood; East Los Angeles-based performance artist and writer, Marisela Norte; Filipina American poet, Irene Suico Soriano; Korean American emcee, Doc Whisper; and Jewish-American musician Joseph DeRusha will explore universal themes ranging from social justice, relationships, and diversity through spoken word and music.
Voices of LA: The Krupnick Festival of the Arts is a citywide series of cross-cultural collaborations, bringing together award-winning Jewish artists with artmakers from diverse communities across Los Angeles, representing a broad range of ethnicities, cultures, and disciplines.
