"[Dark lays her] stories bare for all to see, in a way that is both refreshing and challenging: refreshing because they deal with issues that are often hidden and get short shrift in the world of entertainment; and challenging because they expose some harsh realities of modern social structures and ask the viewer to find the humor in them."

-Hawaii Island Journal December 1, 2005

"Kimberly is a titan of academia, a barca-academic in the truest sense of the term, a surfer of the North Shore of Gender, a double-barreled pair of high heels ready to kick the assumptions of anyone on the psychedelic fjord of blowing her mind. And she glows red."

"...those 8 inch platform heels worn by strippers and drag queens make her show-and-tell points about the hobbling of female sexuality and what that says about the voyeurs watching them. And she does so humorously by inviting men in the audience onstage to try clomping around in that impossibly awkward footgear."

"Dark's love poems are candid... and helped earn her an enthusiastic standing ovation from an audience of several hundred."

- San Diego Union Tribune

"She doesn't emulate other people's style; she doesn't mimic what you think poetry is. Her voice is literary and sensual...It's unafraid. It's assertive and yet can be very tender. She's very dramatic and is definitely a performance poet..

"Becoming the Subject of Your Own Story" - Kimberly Dark uses smart, funny spoken word performance to help audiences see how they often treat life as a beauty or popularity contest, rather than living up to their full potential. This women’s empowerment event is engaging and relevant for men too, as Kimberly provides potent information on how to build a healthy happy--and socially meaningful--life. "I would never have thought that such important social issues could be addressed with such an enjoyable demeanor... there was no pressure to believe what she believed. It simply opened up your mind!” Male College Student
