Slowdance at the Chinook Series
The Chinook Series is being billed as #2HotWeeks of shows at the ATB Arts Barn in Edmonton as the festival brings attention to a wide range of artists from across the capital, as well as visiting artists from across North America. One of the groups participating is Black Arts Matter who shine a light on the many black artists and people of colour who never seem to get their voices seen or heard. On Wednesday, February 13, their production, "Slowdance," takes the stage with a collaboration of movement and spoken word poetry from Nasra Adem. They are a published poet and were the Youth Poet Laureate in Edmonton for 2016 and 2017. Nasra Adem joined Russell in the Daybreak studio.
