Moving Poets Charlotte relaunches

Posted By on Sat, Mar 9, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Do you remember The Moving Poets? The performance art troupe that combined dance, theater, music, visual arts and multi-media for its shows was established in Charlotte in 1996, but drifted away - far, far away to Berlin, Germany - in the late 2000s. Moving Poets Berlin continues to offer performances, concerts and workshops across the pond, but long-time dancer Sarah Emery is moving on. She's back in the Q.C. for the relaunching of Moving Poets Charlotte.


For a peek at some of the group's moves - without the jetlag - come out to Hart-Witzen Gallery on March 9 for Moving Poets Revival, an evening of art-related performances. Other entertainment will include slam master Bluz, a fire dance performance by Hardin Minor, live music from Jonesalee, live painting by Osiris Rain and pole dancing by Annie Vareen of AFV Exotic Arts. There will also be a silent auction, hors d'oeuvres from Carpe Diem Restaurant and Catering, wine tastings from Van Miller and Common Market, and cheese from Cabot Cheese Creamery. $25 donation at the door. March 9, 7 p.m. Hart-Witzen Gallery, 136 E. 36th St. RSVP by calling 704-607-1410 or e-mail
