Arts Preview: "How to Have Searius Fun"

Jim Fischer

You can be Searius and still have fun. Searius should know, and he's going to tell you how.

Spoken word artist Searius Addishin will cover this and other topics at "How to Have Searius Fun" at Wild Goose Creative on Sunday, July 31. The prolific poet, who got his start as a hip-hop MC (Searius Add), plans a verbal mixed-media program, including spoken-word poetry, a prose presentation on the topic of "fun" and a preview of two books that will be available later this year.

"This [program] will be a lot of motivational talk," Addishin said. "I haven't ever done a show like this."

That said, Addishin won't be totally eschewing poems.

"Some of the subjects I want to talk about, I have a poem that relates to it," he said.

His forthcoming books include "On a Searius Note II: Memoirs of a Progressive Gentleman," a follow-up to a title he published in 2014.

The one-hour program will also include an opportunity for questions and answers.
