Portland Polyvocal Poetry

Sunday, July 18
2:00 - 4:00 pm 

Ladd Circle
(SE 16th & Harrison,  between Hawthorne & Division) 


Performers, poets, and friends will gather to test the capability of the poem as conversation. Many of the poems performed on Sunday will be from years past, and by poets no longer with us; others contemporary and presented by their authors. All will be performed by multiple voices, some by speaking or singing chorus, and several will include the opportunity for audience creativity and participation.

Please bring your own refreshments and seating accommodations (towels or folding chairs).
