"Se dovessi avere una figlia, invece di mamma, mi chiamerà Punto B..." recita Sarah Kay, poetessa di "spoken word" (poesia orale), in un discorso che ha ispirato due standing ovation a TED2011. Racconta la propria storia di metamorfosi - da un'adolescente con gli occhi spalancati immersi nei versi presso il New York Bowery Poetry Club ad un'insegnante che, attraverso il progetto V.O.I.C.E., mette i bambini in relazione con il potere di auto-espressione - e offre due esibizioni mozzafiato di "B" e "Hiroshima".

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
