An Evening of Original Poetry with David Kwiat
Presented at GableStage Tuesday July 31st at 7:30
David Kwiat has been a professor in the Theater Division at New World School of the Arts since 1989. He is the recipient of an Endowed Teaching Chair and his many performances in South Florida have earned him two Carbonell Awards; “Best Actor” and “Best Supporting Actor.” David authored John Barrymore: Confessions of an Actor, which he has performed at the Edinburgh International Theatre Festival, The King's Head Theatre in London and throughout the United States. David's poem "Hurricane Season: The Nature of War" was included in the 10th Edition of The Art of Being Human. His book of poetry, A Traveler in Residence is available at Amazon.com and he is currently completing his latest book of poetry, Terminal Hotel. David lives, teaches, acts, and writes poetry in Miami.
David Kwiat says about his poetry:
“As an actor, teacher and poet, I love both the spoken and written word. As a performer, I am keenly aware of my audience and I think that informs my poetry a lot. As an actor the last thing I would ever want to do is bore an audience. Poetry is no different. I want to convey a concise message and make sure there is a palpable impact. As a writer, I want the reader to journey through my life experience as a mirror of their own personal history.
As I tell my students, we (humanity) have so much more in common than we do differences. With that assumption, it is easy for me to be honest about my fears and joys and perceptions because I pretty much assume everyone else holds those same feelings within. The pleasure I receive from writing is sharing with a larger audience the simple truths of our lives. I enjoy taking the ordinary and finding what can possibly make it extraordinary.”
GableStage is located at 1200 Anastasia Avenue Coral Gables, 33134. Please do not call the box office. Free Admission, General Seating
