Christian Swenson preforms at the Fine Arts Center in Port Angeles, WA

In Port Angeles, Washington last weekend the  Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts celebrated its 17th year.  Christian Swenson entertained crowds with his improvisation of body and voice.  He read the poetry of his good friend, Lance M. Loder in between his own art:  a cross-cultural synthesis of theater, dance and music and its willingness to unbridle the imagination.

The Traveling Poet AKA Apollo Poetry hit the scene in 2007 claiming many awards and appearances on MTV and the Billboard Awards.  In 2009, he moved into his van and began the YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL campaign. Last month, his film short, ‘The Lost Poem’ took prizes for best director and audience choice award at filmfest21.
