KINETIC POETRY is a radically new type of performance art that features the unique combination of breathtaking circus-style acrobatics (artistic pole dancing, aerial rings, hooping, poi dancing) against a backdrop of aggressive and emotional slam poetry.

For the 2nd annual event, the Berks Bards have invited premier dancer/acrobats from all over the eastern half of the United States. Top acts include Vayda Kiss, 2011 Miss Pole Champ USA; Christine Hebestadt of Pole Jam Factory, retired professional ballet

dancer, teacher, choreographer, model and actor; Rachel Skye, performer and choreographer featured on VH1’s Dance Cam Slam, Ryssa, 1st place winner of the first Lehigh Valley Pole Dance Competition and Rhonda Chamberlain, 2009 USPDF finalist.

Accompanying the dance performances will be the voices of some of America’s best award-winning slam poets on the East Coast including headliner Deborah Magdalena from Miami, nationally-acclaimed poet, actress, sister of Latin Grammy winner Nestor Torres and grandniece of legendary Puerto Rican singer Ruth Fernandez; Reagan “Rigz” Mendoza, nationally recognized performer, composer, and musician; El Poeta from Philadelphia, founder of Organic Poets and Dope Boys of Poetry; Perry “Vision” DiVirgilio, accomplished poet, actor and teacher from Philadelphia who was awarded the Alternative Soul award for best Spoken Word Performer and Reading’s own Noah Ayala, a member of Reading Hip-hop Summit.
