ICY GAZE uses poetry to befriend their own soul and hopefully play with yours. Born in Indonesia and based on Turtle Island, they have been cultivating their poetic dexterity for over ten years. They blossomed as a spoken word poet on the UBC and Vancouver Poetry Slam stages, eventually featuring and competing nationally. Inspired by the literary tradition in their South Asian roots, ICY’s poetry is a journey of overcoming shame, guilt, and grief by shattering illusions, showing up in the present as authentically as possible, and becoming love.
