ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kimberly Dark continues to work tirelessly on her abilities as a parent, poet, professor and raconteur who can unfold the world through performance, smooth out the crinkles from folding, read the legend and say "You Are Here." Someday she will even be able to refold the world and fit it back into the glove-box. Her practice includes writing every day, walking on the beach with her teenage son, teaching in classrooms, online and anywhere else that seems appropriate.

She travels far and wide performing stories that scandalize some audiences and affirm the very existence of others. She wins theatre awards, enjoys standing ovations and endures days when settling down to a more regular life seems more sensible. She has performed and taught in fancy theatres and esteemed classrooms as well as in the jungle where the frogs chirp so loudly and the rain falls so hard, one has to pause to accommodate. She loves a technically well-equipped venue, but also loves a stage where there’s nothing swanky – just the body, the voice, the word and the audience. Some of these things qualify her as an artist; some of them just qualify her.

Kimberly's writing and performances have delighted and incited audiences at theaters and universities across North America and Europe for the past ten years. She continues to teach sociology at Cal State San Marcos and University of Hawaii when her schedule allows. Her frequent themes are gender, sexuality, poverty, privilege, parenting and education. Her work blends humor, poetry, story-telling, education and social research to stimulate both social analysis and action.
