Celebrated Canadian spoken word artist Andrea Thompson will perform at Word Up Wednesday in Regina on March 19, 2014.
Thompson’s two-‐decade long career includes an appearance in the quintessential film about poetry slam culture in North America, Slam Nation, multiple publications in poetry and fiction, and the "Poet of Honour" award, a recognition of outstanding achievement in spoken word, at the 2010 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Ottawa.

The White Room is the exciting second installment of the UpStage at the Centre series. The play asks important questions about the nature and effects of prejudice and suspicion while using language as an unexpected tool in this two man drama.
“Regardless of whether you speak French, English or both, you will be struck by the use of language in this work.” says producer Shannon Harasen. “Ian has crafted the changes between languages in such a way that they work as tactics, tricks and even weapons at times. It’s very purposeful and quite gripping. This particular story is at once uniquely Canadian in its telling and globally understood in its subject matter.”
