All Girl & All Queer, Oratrix stomps into SF delivering passion, politics and poetic fury. Amy Mahoney, Katinka Kraft, Tara Hardy, and Lane Stroud are four loud-mouthed Seattle based spoken word and slam poets, who have toured nationally and internationally mixing spoken word with voice, politics, and rhythm.
We live in a culture of war: internationally, domestically, and internally. Amy Mahoney, Katinka Kraft, Tara Hardy, and Lane Stroud are fiercely writing themselves out of a battle of apathy born of heartbreak. In a country that replaces schools with prison, exploits its poor and anyone it defines as ‘other,’ exalts a culture of wealth and celebrity, delivers aggression abroad, thrives on religious puritanical terrorism, the most difficult battle is the one to truly believe that you can make a difference. These poets are here to remind you that words can be a vehicle out of apathy.
