Ordinary Magic is the poetic discussion of perspective. What makes a speech poetic is the tapestry of word choice and intention. What makes a life poetic is the tapestry of choices of action and intention. What holds both together is perspective.

During this Salon event we will watch Gill Sotu’s spoken word performance from TEDxSanDiego’s 2016 event, followed by a discussion of how his narrative was created, and exploration of the spoken word format.

Poet, writer, DJ, musician Gill Sotu is a two-time Grand Slam Poetry Champion, effortlessly weaving poetry into musical and theatre performance. Currently the Artist In Residence at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, Gill wrote and performed the poetic segments to Melissa Adao’s dance theatre showcase, “Hip-Hop CabHooray!” His efforts won him Outstanding Production at the 2015 Fringe Fest.
