Slam Coalkan: Performance Poetry: The Condor and the Eagle Meet (Paperback)
A Cross-Continental Roar
In 2021, sixteen Indigenous spoken word artists from North and South America performed their works at the Festival of the Peripheries (FLUP) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA) in Toronto, Canada. This anthology, featuring poems from each of the performers, is the result of this remarkable cross-border collaboration. Digitally enhanced with QR codes, Slam Coalkan links readers to the poets' performances at the festivals.
From these pages the poets sing their hopes and their dreams. These are the voices of resistance, voices that speak out against the evils of colonialism, racism, transphobia, and genocide. Voices that cry, shout, whisper and roar passionate messages to the world.
