Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation 900 Sanford Road Santa Rosa, CA


Rumi’s Caravan is a performance ensemble dedicated to restoring the Soul of the World through the revival of the oral tradition of poetry. For this event, the performers will be Doug von Koss, Kay Crista, Rebecca Evert, and Larry Robinson. This will not be a reading or a slam but rather a poetic conversation. Each of the poets have committed a body of poetry to memory and will share the poems spontaneously as the conversation calls them forth. It is not scripted so none of them know what poems might emerge. What the poems will have in common is a love and reverence for this beautiful world in which we have been blessed to be born.
