The Intimate Barrage

Poets Todd and Cybele Zufolo Siegel host Word Performances, a heavy-hitting lineup of literary talent that got its start at Viracocha and features a little bit of everything: comedians Nato Green and Zahra Noorbakhsh; bestselling journalist Sylvie Simmons (I'm Your Man); performance poet Tim Toaster Henderson; novelist Zarina Zabrisky (We, Monsters); short story writer and frequent contributor to NPR's Snap Judgment Doug Cordell; and more. Any one of those artists can knock you out with a mind-bending performance on a given night, but with their powers combined you're guaranteed to be overwhelmed. Add a musical set by folk and jazz chanteuse Miss Erma Kyriakos and cellist Andres Ver, a dance cameo by the hostess, and the intimate confines of The Lost Church, and this is sure to be a special evening.
