Shane Koyczan is an extraordinary talent, one that has blown the dust off of the traditional designation “poet.” His performance in the opening ceremony of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics brought him to the world’s attention, and his viral “To This Day” Project video focused new emotional urgency on the subject of bullying. Winner of the U.S. Slam Poetry Championship and the Canadian Spoken Word Olympics, Koyczan is best experienced up close and personal, with his rhythmic verse in high gear, piloting his audience through social and political territory with a furious honesty and a tender humanity.
