Performetry: noun \pə(r)-ˈfȯrm-ə-trē\, also \pə(r)-ˈfȯrm-i-trē\ : The act of giving body to sound and presence to poetry through performance.

The January edition of Performetry will feature poet Naomi Ayala, Whitman's "Song of Myself" and an expanded, all ages open-mic. This month you can also enjoy free homemade soup and bread and vegan dessert!

Performetry is a monthly performance series at BloomBars that traverses generations of verse, focusing on the theatrical presentation of classical, contemporary, and musical forms of poetry. Each event includes the performance of a classic poem, featured works from a contemporary DC-area poet, an open mic, and live musical interludes.

Performetry is sponsored by The Performing Knowledge Project with the generous support of BloomBars, and funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities. Sanctuary Theatre's Performing Knowledge Project, founded by DC Writers/Theatre Artists Robert Michael Oliver and Elizabeth Bruce, nurtures the space where performance and education meet and produces a variety of performances and hosts writing, learning, and performance-oriented workshops on different subjects and writing styles.
