Kick off THIN AIR with a trio of poets! Paul Dutton has been exploring the interface between poetry and music for almost five decades, including a stint as part of The Four Horsemen. Steven Ross Smith is one of Canada’s preeminent sound poets, and has been experimenting with the materiality of language for most of his writing life. Kevin Spenst has been taking poetry to the street, creating performance opportunities in the most unlikely settings.

They’ll share their work, then join Festival Director Charlene Diehl for an on-stage conversation about breaching the boundaries of poetry.

Books will be available on-site. Cash bar.

Advance tickets are no longer available since our office will be closed during the festival. Tickets can still be purchased at the door of the event.
