Vancouver poetry house presents feature poet C-Command. C-Command is a spoken word poet, rapper, and seeker of flow. He studied theatre performance in Montreal for four years, until one night he had a lucid dream in which he could freestyle. He left the dream slowly, and then watched his new powers vanish helplessly as his regular mind woke up… But the experience showed him a deep mystery, and he vowed to one day figure out the magnetic properties of rhythm and rhyme. He lives in Vancouver now, writing and experimenting and going for it.
As always, there will be an open mic and two-round poetry slam, (3 min) where poets accumulate points to qualify for the Van Slam team.
Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.
Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM at the door, it’s cash ONLY.
Get there early if you want a seat or want to slam. Before 7pm.
