UUCA - Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta says
The UUCA Performing Arts Coordinating Team (PACT) invites you to the kickoff event for the new poetry reading series, Wine, Cheese, and the Spoken Word, on Friday, May 13, 7:30 pm, in the Underground Theatre. This inaugural session will be hosted by Carol Welter and feature Duncan E. Teague.

Before his life as an ordained Unitarian Universalist clergy, Duncan E. Teague was a recognized spoken word artist. Teague was a theater major as an undergraduate and moved to Atlanta with the intent of joining one of the African American theater companies when his life took the turn into work of HIV/AIDS prevention and education movements of the mid to late 1980s. Teague was the senior member of The ADODI Muse, A Gay Negro Ensemble for more than ten years beside Anthony Antoine and Malik M.L. Williams. The ADODI Muse had great fun performing at UUCA years ago for Sunday worship. Teague's stories and poetry are published in several anthologies of gay life and poetry collections. ADODI Muse also self-published, "Ain't Got Sense Enuf to be 'Shamed," a compact disc of their favorite poems from their touring schedule in the early 2000's.

Rev. Duncan Teague is happy to be opening the Spoken Word series at UUCA and returning to his love of sharing stories and poetry in dramatic form. He considers this a sacred break from his ministerial calling to start Abundant LUUv, a new Unitarian Universalist community in Southwest Atlanta.

An open mic session will follow Duncan’s reading, and the evening will conclude with a discussion and feedback session. Poets interested in sharing their work should contact Carol at The series is scheduled for the second Friday of each month. Wine and soft drinks will be available. The Underground Theatre is the primary performing arts venue of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta. Doors open at 7 pm; readings are from 7:30-9:30 pm. Suggested admission donation is $5, but no one is turned away.
