About the work at PlatteForum
“Evidence of a Distance Traveled” is a one-woman performance. Poet and performer Andrea Moore uses her travels across the country and around the world as fodder for stories and observations about belonging, connection, love, art, and science. Moore marries the art of performance poetry with the style of an academic lecture, and the result is a dynamic, compelling exploration of topics as diverse as gender roles, sexuality, disability, and physics. At once humorous, critical, and poignant, “Evidence of a Distance Traveled” articulates our yearning to authentically belong… in the world at large, in our communities, and in our own skin.
