The Poetics of Blue, Womanhood and Life in The Caribbean

This one-hour poetry reading and film screening will highlight the realities and emotional complexities for women living in The Caribbean. Based on the collection, BLUE, this event interweaves the author’s experimental processes with larger discussions surrounding folklore, motherhood, mental & reproductive health, generational trauma and environment.

About the Book: BLUE is a poetic-narrative on love, heartbreak, and the inescapable blue. In a country where seas mirror skies, and the shore is never too far away, blue is the central hue modelling The Bahamas and its many complexities. Each poem dives deeper and deeper as the poet unearths themes surrounding motherhood, family, the body, trauma, and nationhood.

Tanicia Pratt (she/her) is a Bahamian poet, author, editor, and conceptual artist. Experimenting with film, sound, and performance, her work reimagines the Anglo-Caribbean landscape through a feminist lens of history, culture, language and memory. Her artist book, I Dream Baby Not Fish…, was collected by The National Poetry Library of England, and her poetry has been published in Bad Form, Lungs Magazine, Decorating Dissidence, PREE, Rewrite London, amongst others. She is now based in Nassau, New Providence.
