Si j'avais une fille, au lieu de m’appeler maman, elle m’appelera Point B…commença la poète de "spoken word" Sarah Kay, lors d’une performance qui a incité deux ovations debout lors de l'édition de TED 2011. Elle raconte l’histoire de sa transformation – d’une adolescente bouche bée absorbée dans les vers du New York Bowery Poetry Club à une enseignante montrant aux enfants les pouvoirs de l’expression de leur personnalité à travers le Projet V.O.I.C.E. – tout en interprétant “B" et “Hiroshima" d’une façon stupéfiante.

A performing poet since she was 14 years old, Sarah Kay is the founder of Project VOICE, an organization that uses spoken word poetry as a literacy and empowerment tool. Full bio
