Smart bets: The Art of the Word

For dancer and Cilla Vee Life Arts director Claire Elizabeth Barratt, designing interdisciplinary, mixed-media performances is a creative pursuit in itself. Her next event, The Art of Word, “presents poetry as a living art form that can influence and be influenced by other art forms in the collaborative process.” In turns, three poets will take the stage alongside a peer. Pairs include Randi Janelle with multi-instrumentalist Ben Brill; Tracey Schmidt with guitarist Michael Ivey; and Jeff Davis accompanying Barratt. Between their idiosyncratic acts, singer-songwriter Momma Molasses will warm the room with melodies, and visual art from several of the performers will adorn the walls of Weaverville Yoga — where the show unfolds on Friday, Sept. 30, at 7.30 p.m. $5-$15 sliding scale.
