Whitman on Walls! takes Walt Whitman’s radical vision and shapes it into a cri de coeur for justice in the world’s community. Using Whitman’s own artistic inspiration from opera, musicals, plays and journalism, WoW! is a hybrid event intermingling over 50 performers and 7 short films with local living poets to accept Whitman’s invitation to step “into the unknown.” WoW! invites us all to ask: what does it mean to break through walls into new understandings?
Conceived and directed by Karin Coonrod with original music by Colin Jacobsen, Kyle Sanna, and Eric Jacobsen. Live Performers include: Myra Lucretia Taylor; Martha Redbone; Michael Potts; Wanda Phipps; Brad Vogel; William Eric Waters; Kyle Bass; and many more!
