Hillside Summer Festival 2017

July 14 - 16

David James Hudson & Lisa Baird

A spoken word duo from Guelph, Ontario (Attawandaron territory), Lisa Baird and David James Hudson are two distinct voices, sometimes together and sometimes apart. Their storytelling finds poetry in mourning, testimony, celebration, and deep care against backdrops of systemic violence, collapsing the thin walls between the personal and the political, between physical bodies and words, between laughter, anger, and grief.
