Note Senior & Beyond Baroque Member tickets will be sold only at the door.

Poetry in Motion often sells out and this time we’re scheduled for 8pm on a Saturday night. By buying a ticket rather than showing up at the door without one you’ll not only save $5, you’ll be sure of a good seat in the theater which may be standing room only.

Its best to arrive a bit early because we do tend to start on time. You'll find parking easy in the lots and streets behind and around Beyond Baroque.

Perla Batalla - Grammy nominated vocalist, composer, and arranger Perla Batalla was born in Los Angeles, CA.  She first gained international attention as a backup singer for Leonard Cohen who encouraged Perla to embark on a solo career.  Perla released her debut Perla Batalla on the Warner/Discovery label in 1994 to great critical success. Like many original artists, Perla opted to go independent early on, releasing her second album, Mestiza--Meaning of mixed blood--on her own Mechuda Music label.  Heaven and Earth followed in 2000. Both co-written with David Batteau, the Mestiza song cycle (chosen best independent release of the year by the editorial staff at Amazon) offer a vision of a vibrant culture still nourished and inhabited by mysticism, imagery, magic and myth.  Perla’s tribute to Leonard Cohen entitled Bird on the Wire (also nominated for a Grammy) features a Who’s Who list of celebrated and world-class musicians, including David Hidalgo of Los Lobos. The album has been embraced with open arms by die-hard Cohen fans and critics alike. “Sing Out” magazine’s Michael Tearson wrote: “Beautifully conceived and executed…for those uninitiated to the glories of the songs of Leonard Cohen this is a wonderful introduction. For the rest of us it is simply heavenly”. Sold out performances at UCLA’s Royce Hall marked the album’s release.  In 2012 LACMA commissioned Perla and David Batteau to compose new work to commemorate the opening of In Wonderland, The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States. The Bing Theater premiere featured The Eclipse String Quartet, Jon Beasley and Van Dyke Parks and is currently being workshopped at The Aspen Writers Conference for theatrical production in the future.  In 2009 Perla was the recipient of the United Nation’s Earth Charter Award for extraordinary devotion to social and economic justice.

David Batteau - was born in Boston, Massachusetts to Harvard professor, Dwight Wayne Batteau and his wife Blanca Delia Batteau. At twelve-years-old David had an epiphany that he was a songwriter. When David was eighteen-years-old Frank Sinatra paid for his first demos. In 1974, he released his first album, Batteaux, with his brother, Robin Batteau, for Columbia Records. He had his first hit that same year with his song "Tell Her She's Lovely" as recorded by El Chicano. He has since had over three hundred releases of his songs with sales of over forty million. His songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Sergio Mendes, Robert Palmer, Donna Summer, Dolly Parton and Madeleine Peyroux, Raul Midon, Luciana Souza among many others.There is no area of popular American music of which he has not been a part of.

Laurel Ann Bogen is the author of ten books of poetry and short fiction, including Washing a Language; Fission; The Last Girl in the Land of the Butterflies and Rag Tag We Kiss.

Nancy Fulton publishes books and audio dramas you can find on your iPhone and Amazon, writes screenplays with Judd Nelson, and runs the Santa Monica Writers Group which helps authors produce and publish their work swiftly and profitably.  She also has the great good fortune to serve as associate producer to Eve Brandstein and to support Poetry in Motion which has been bringing together award winning writers and performers in Hollywood's longest running literary salon. 

Lauran Hoffman, wrote, produced and financed the play, and feature film entitled Bar Girls released by Orion Pictures.  She swears she could not have done this without the confidence building, sounding board forum, and support, garnered through her performances with Poetry in Motion through the late 80's and early 90's.  She was a prolific thinker, until recently discovering thoughts contribute to premature aging, so she stopped doing that. Now practices "being" rather than "doing," and try placing that on a bio with a straight face.

She has taught the graduate course,Archetypal Patterns in Cinema as Pacifica faculty.

Mende Smith is not an in-your-face kind of writer. From the frantic provocations of Diners and burning trailer park porches her words flicker, leaving us in embers. Writing in booths and back yards from Seattle to Los Angeles bring two collections of poetry and anthology co-ops on three continents. Smith's children have grown up around her ears like fruit trees and after three-years tucked away in a Washington university, now she just writes. Smith is a freelance writer and award-winning blogger, editor, and emerging journalist. She lives in Los Angeles.
