The Renegade Theatre Festival has created a new series called Renegade Readings to showcase the work of local playwrights and lead to the annual free Renegade Theatre Festival, this year running August 14-16.
Spoken Word features a number of performers, each presenting poetry and story via performance. Spoken Word has been described as many things; fundamentally, it is poetry or stories that are meant to be performed rather than read from a page, or read out loud. And generally, the topics are personal explorations and commentary, though not limited to non-fiction. Each Spoken Word artist has a different style – come and enjoy the diversity and variety! Artists scheduled include musician, performer and hip-hop artist Solo, and writer/story-teller Suban Nur Cooley.
MICA Gallery presents a wide range of contemporary art in changing exhibits. It is one of the programming activities offered by the Michigan Institute for Contemporary Art. Others include Lansing JazzFest, Old Town BluesFest, Burning Desires, and the recent Grand American Fish Rodeo.
