Bio

The Goddess is alive, and magic is afoot through the revivalist poetry of internationally acclaimed poet, SpokenWord artist and cultural activist Christa Bell of Seattle, Washington. Her conundrum: How to make the Goddess fonky? How to make the resurrection of women’s spiritual consciousness sexy while maintaining its urgency and emphasizing it’s relevance to popular culture. The solution? Sanctifying women’s experience on the alter of the stage. Take the responsibility for her conceptual reality out of the hands of men. Through performance ritual, emphasizing the Word, reconnect woman to her primal identity as sexual mystic, conjurer, healing artist, and divine visionary.

Christa, a Seattle native, received her BA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, has studied in France and lived in East Africa. She is currently the third ranked Performance Poet in the United States and Seattle’s 2005 Grand Slam Poetry Champion as well as the Northwest’s 2005 and 2006 representative at the Individual World Poetry Slam Competition (IWPS).

As founder of the Healing Is A Political Act (HIAPA) Creative Recovery Workshop Series, Christa is concerned with more than the technical aspects of writing and performing. She believes that expressing individual creativity is a form of power. A way to actively engage and transform our spiritual, emotional, social and political realities. Her workshops hold as their emphasis the healing of ancestral, emotional, and spiritual scars as a path to higher creativity.

She is the author of three collections of poetry, Revival (2004), Arise My Beautiful One, Come With Me (2005), and YoniVerses (to be released 2006), the producer of a live Spoken Word EP entitled, WordMedicine, 2006, and is currently recording a full length live LP of her first SpokenWord tour also entitled Yoniverses: Live.

Christa recently headlined her first, international, 40-city tour, WordMedicine 2006, and she is currently in the production stage of her first full length theatrical performance, a one-woman show titled, “Coochie Magic: A SpokenWord Musical Comedy” which explores the parallels between both her sexual and spiritual coming of age.
