Kimberly Dark continues to work tirelessly on her abilities as a mother, poet, professor and an engaged, authentic soul 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 re-fold the world and fit it back into the glove-box. Her progress on these abilities has included going on really long RV trips with her child during summer vacations, winning a bunch of poetry slams, doing performances in venues ranging from sandy playgrounds to fancy theaters, galleries to train stations and school classrooms. 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. In addition to her full-length theater shows, her spoken word performances can be customized for various audiences. Her frequent themes are gender, sexuality, abuse, poverty and education. She is also a popular workshop leader on a variety of topics in addition to teaching at the university level when her schedule allows. Her work blends humor, poetry, story-telling, education and social research in order to stimulate a critical analysis of the culture in which we live.
