After a last-minute change of venue (our hosts at Fazenda had to close up shop due to the inclement weather), a small crowd gathered in Dorchester to hear feature Corrina Bain and spotlight performer Stevie Edwards share the poems they’d bundled with them through the snowstorm. Luckily some of our Moonlighters are as persistent as the snow, and they came out to the new venue for a cozy, round-robin style open mic and an intimate performance from the two artists. Stevie shared both poems from her book, Good Grief, and new work. Corrina’s stark, haunting poems and powerful performance filled the new space to the rafters and brought the audience on an exploration of gender and the body in the media and community. He performed some requested hits and some work unfamiliar to the audience. We can’t wait to have Corrina back soon to wow the whole crowd at Fazenda–in slightly milder climes.
Our next Moonlighting feature is TBA, but the date is firm: you can mark Thursday, February 6 in your calendar for the next reading!
