Flowpoetry: Dance, Issue #3
Our third installation of Flowpoetry‘s work is called “Dance” and describes the movement, both internal and external, felt when swirling to music. For the author, dance takes place both within and without the body. We dance to music and, at the same time, dance the cosmic dance of the universe as it dances us. This is happening all the time without cease and has little to do with us as individuals. How are you going to dance it out if you don’t dance it in?
Having bridged the gap between poetry and music, Flowpoetry’s progressive and chill approach to spoken word jam transcends musical boundaries and interlaces shared storytelling and poetic vibration into a communal and collective consciousness that unifies the ancient and future as one. With over 950 shows in the USA with bands and as a solo poet, Flowpoetry has been honored as a finalist for the MNSWA “Urban Griot” International/National Performer of the year alongside other poets such as Leonard Cohen and Saul Williams. In 2014, Flowpoetry was voted as one of Madison Magazine’s Best Spoken Word/Poetry Performers. He is a three-time finalist for Best Artist in the Annual Madison WI Area Music Awards.
