Poet at the Poker Table, Quixote at Peak Performances, Blacksmiths, and the NJ Arts Annual

Joel Dias-Porter Is an award-winning poet, and formerly a member of the US Air Force, a DJ, and teacher. Joel lives and writes poetry in Atlantic City where he supports himself, in part, with casino winnings. Quixote, by composer Amy Beth Kirsten and director Mark DeChiazza, reimagines the classic with the help of singing percussionists and video projections. We’re there for the world premiere at Montclair State University’s Peak Performances. In Three Cedars Forge in Bridgeton, NJ, get a lesson from a third generation blacksmith, Toby Kroll. Toby mentors Stephen Nuttall, who’s setting up his own blacksmith shop at Tuckerton Seaport, an historic maritime village featuring traditional artisans. And, a visit to the NJ Arts Annual’s 50th anniversary exhibition.
