Adamz creates from and teaches reclamation narrative, cousin to the Native American concept of story medicine. Adamz believes that from the sublime to the mundane, words are a fundamental vehicle for meaningful human exchange.
“Performance is the medium through which meaning exceeds words.
Now I choose Spoken Word as my form because it can be performed literally anywhere people can listen. I turned away from large conventional theatre when changes in technology were changing the industry. Those changes, and technology in general, silenced far too many voices yet unheard.
While we have become used to instant communication, we are collectively suffering from lack of human interaction; the response and benefit we get as we listen to stories unravel.
––Simply –With nothing more than a place to sit and the sound of a human voice weaving words with another’s reality. –To walk, for a moment, someone else’s mile.
In a universe of bits and bytes and binary strings of more strings of …nothing…
we starve for the lull…
the organic, melodious elixir of the that sound.
And, the cellular, sensory recall that reminds us of our sameness.” M. Lee Adamz
