Arielle Cottingham

When: Tue., Jan. 3, 9:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m. 2017

Maybe slam poetry isn’t your thing. Maybe, it wouldn’t matter to you if we told you that San Antonio’s weekly PuroSlam, now held Tuesdays at The Korova, has helped mold a bevy of powerful talents, a select task force of warriors who fight for right with their voices raised high. But, what if we told you that you have a chance to see a slam poet who, schooled in the local scene, has recently conquered a whole continent? Such is just your luck, in the form of a special performance by Australia Grand Slam Champion Arielle Cottingham, who, like a good Texan, upon recently moving to the land down under, promptly proceeded to conquer its slam circuits. Her style is, in turns, delicate and gigantic, emotive and furious, heady and immediately physical. In short, she’s nothing like what you think slam poets sound like. Don’t miss this chance to see Cottingham, who is only back to visit, do her thing live.
