Chan Centre’s Beyond Words Series Presents No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks

Poetry Reading/Spoken Word
The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC presents the dazzling multimedia work No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks on February 24, 2019, at 7pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall as part of the Beyond Words series. The late poet was a radical and disruptive presence within the national literary scene, becoming the first African-American to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1950. In this ambitious creation, innovative art-maker Manual Cinema collaborates with Chicago-based poets Eve L. Ewing and Nate Marshall to craft an inspiring biographical narrative, featuring a live six-piece band and original score by Jamila Woods and Ayanna Woods. The production uses a combination of exquisite paper puppetry, actors working with shadow play, and moving images from vintage video projectors. For more information, visit
