Blank Page Poetry uses movement to create shadows along with projected text, activating the poetic expressions and dance numbers curated to the theme of “Waters Avenue: Voices Along the Corridor”.
We are delighted to have sourced the performers for this edition of Blank Page Poetry through their personal or professional connection to Waters Avenue. In uniting their voices through this upcoming showcase, the audience is not only captivated in a unique, multi-sensory way, but also offered a chance to poetically consider what roles these communities serve, both personally and sociologically. In a line-up of around ten talented performers, we are excited to feature a wide range of backgrounds and experiences including, but not limited to: Rayshawn Roberts, a 4th grade teacher and actor from Hesse Elementary, Gail Smith, whose family lineage is still connected to Pin Point and is a writer and specialist in Gullah Geechee culture, and Susan Earl, noted Savannah author whose books include “In the Dark” and “Harrington’s Way”.
Blank Page Poetry was created in 2016 by artist Jerome Meadows and has seen several iterations all with unique themes, both locally and nationally, notably with three performances at the Jepson Museum, as well as in Columbia, SC, Charleston, SC, Chattanooga, TN, and Portsmouth, NH.
