Recorded to accompany the print edition, Motion in Poetry - The Audio Xperience, is the sound of dub poetry alive and in front of an audience. Motion tells her powerful stories of identity, strength, and place, to put a voice to the face, and sounds to the words. Motion in Poetry charts a journey in language that is rich in contemporary African-Canadian rhythms. Invoking the spirit of Toronto's dub poet legends, Brathwaite makes a name for herself within the spoken word vernacular, while in other poems, strict, Standard English is put to the service of her unique and powerful storytelling. Motion in Poetry reads like a swaying ride through life, love, raw desire, political irony, fiery emotions about race, class and gender, touching sadness and sweet, dry humour. -Bonus Track- "connect the t.dots," winner of the first annual CBC Poetry Face-Off.
