Poet/Performance Artist Kylyra live in Dublin
Poet and performance artist Kylyra appearing live in Dublin on 29 September 2009.
A well respected on-line artist with pages on MySpace, Facebook, Dark World International, and YouTube, Kylyra's popularity from her performances has grown enormously over the last year. The artist has developed a theatre style show using her poetry, music, and scripting skills. Her Dublin appearance will be the debut of her integrated show idea. "I knew right from the start that I wanted to head in this direction. The Cobblestone is a wonderful venue to premiere my idea in," Kylyra stated. With her performances already compared to Laurie Anderson, Grace Jones, and Karen Finney, Kylyra's new show promises to be a hit with a wide audience range. "The show is set around my neo-beat material with a jazz combo backing, but it also includes some of my humorous pieces. I've got two brand new poems to lay on the audience as well."
Ra is Dublin’s premier monthly spoken word showcase, featuring the best in performing spoken word -- poetry, hip hop, monologue, storytelling, diatribes, rants and more from Dublin and beyond. Each showcase features new set pieces by award-winning house wordsmiths & joined by guest musicians, and a featured guest performer. Ra maintains the most high-spirited and intense atmosphere of the Dublin spoken word scene and the house credo is one of experimentation, so expect anything. This is the spot for not only fans of the word, but even those who say: “Poetry? I don’t like that stuff…” . They like this stuff; it’s on the menu the last Tuesday of every month beginning and 9 p.m. and it’s absolutely free.
Kylyra will be appearing live at Ra@The Cobblestone, Smithfield Market, Dublin, on 29 September 2009. The evening begins at 9 p.m. Visit www.darkworld.com for more information on Kylyra.
