March 2, 3, 4

Masquerade: Poems of Calypso and Home

Roger Bonair-Agard shares stories, poems, and calypso over a bottle of rum in his newest work Masquerade: Poems of Calypso and Home.

Through poetry and song, with humor and in all seriousness, Masquerade explores the ways in which distance, remembrance, and seventeen years away from home shape a man. It critiques and celebrates the Trinidadian ethos by examining the influence that its seminal music -- calypso -- exerts on a poet and the larger world.

Roger is a Cave Canem fellow and has studied with such luminaries as Yusef Komunyakaa, Marilyn Nelson, and Cornelius Eady. In 1998, he was named the Nuyorican Poets Café Fresh Poet of the Year. That same year, he coached the Nuyorican team to victory in the National Poetry Slam over 44 other teams. The following year he earned the title of National Individual Slam Champion while leading and coaching the New York City louderARTS team to the final four of the National Poetry Slam (out of 48 teams), a feat he repeated in 2000.

You may have seen him on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, don’t miss this rare local appearance!

• March 2, 3, 4 - Friday & Saturday at 8PM and Sunday at 4PM
All performances will be followed by a talkback with the artist.

Tickets: $14 - $16 at 607.273.4497 or online at

February 2007 "Creating Solo Performances"
Playwright and performer Kira Lallas to offer class at KTC
Autobiographical pieces are very popular and are a great way to create work for oneself. Kira Lallas, a playwright and performer who has toured her one- woman play Translations of Xhosa throughout the Northeast, will be teaching this four-week workshop.
Mondays, March 5-26 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

Participants will explore the creation and performance of autobiographical work for the stage through writing, imaging, and body/voice work in a collaborative setting.

Participants will learn a series of techniques, exercises and approaches to get the creative juices flowing. The end product may be the solid beginning of a complete piece or a set of skills participants can use for future writing and performance. Regardless of the extent of previous theater experience, this work is applicable to all kinds of writing—and also a lot of fun.

  Kira Photo
About Kira Lallas: A 2002 Boston University graduate and Ithaca native, Kira has lived and worked in Ithaca, Boston, Poland and South Africa.

Class size will be limited to 10 people and participants will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Sign up now! The cost of the workshop is $80. To register, email Lesley Greene ( or call 272-0403.
