Part 2: Where My Ghost is When I’m Late
This is a much overdo post about our tour that happened this summer. And boy oh man oh girl, was it a magical time.
Our adventure began in Elevate the Arts, and we set off for our journey in Cumberland/ Courtney BC. It was a beautiful place, which started with some basic clownery and ferry time and ended with an alien dance party in fishnets.
Here is a vlog about our journey there. We fkn’ poet’d.
Next up we had a performance on Quadra Island at Heriot bay, they treated us too nicely. We stayed in a lovely room with a view of the bay, and had a great performance and led an open mic for folks to get their feet in the game as well.
Then we had the last leg of our tour, the most intense one, knocking off 5 cities in 10 days. We made our way to Spokane, to Portland, to Seattle, to Bellingham and finally back to Olympia. Like a fever dream, we clowned our way through all of our shows.
In Seattle we led our folks through a nice stretch whilst singing O’ Canada. In Olympia we popped and buzzed. In Portland we screamed tiny at the tips of our esophogushes.
Here is a video of our time there:
Many more videos to come of all of our performances- I promise I’ll get those bad boys up on the Youtubes by next weekend. But we are really excited about the future of Tiny Tricycle Poets, spreading play, weirdness and magic. We are hoping to start hosting a monthly “Between Three Wheels” show where we interview local poets in our TTP manner, and then all do some improv/poetry/clowning together.
We are already planning our next tour, full of drive and ambition, love and compassion and wheels set on continuous motion.
