In 2002, Barbara Adler was the youngest performer to win a spot on the acclaimed Vancouver Poetry Slam team, at the age of 18. Now a four-time member, Barbara has toured the world performing poetry both as a solo performer, and as a member of the spoken-word music band, The Fugitives. Known for her ability to mix intellectual poetics with entertaining observations about the quirkier moments of everyday life, Barbara has collaborated with composers, dancers, filmmakers and theater artists, creating “smart, funny, and often deeply moving poetry around questions of history, identity, and self-image” (Georgia Straight). This Spring, she finished a double major in Art and Culture Studies and Fine and Performing Arts at Simon Fraser University. Her new CD is titled “Flusterblush.”
