As a Performance Poet, Marie Michaelle writes and performs her own work with a burning passion to entertain and educate her audiences with a smooth verbal, visually stimulating, and spiritual delivery. Several years of theater training in voice control and delivery have led to a finessed tone which enables her to invoke emotion within her audiences. During her performances, audiences sit in a trance like state of visual paralysis as they visually focus on her every movement. Throughout her life’s experiences, Marie has stockpiled her poetic tool bag full of valuable knowledge with regard to human nature and relationships. Her Haitian heritage infused with American culture, affords her a particular perspective that many who attend her performances and read her books can relate to. To others, Marie’s experience is a source of curiosity. But whatever the case, she pours her experiences over all her works and stimulates the human psyche. Marie Michaelle is working on publishing a number of poetry books in the near future and currently has one out and available on Lulu.com entitled Windy City Poems of Lust and Desire. And if she’s not busy enough with writing books and performing her poetry, she is also working on recording an album. The album promises to include featured appearances and collaborations with other artists both musical and poetic. http://www.mariemichaelle.com
