The RESERVOIR DOGWOODS is a spoken word group that has been bringing a unique style of collaborative live performance to classrooms, theatres, street fairs, bars, and butcher shops since 2008. With a saucy blend of humor, drama, street smarts, literary acumen, homespun wisdom, worldly events, personal catharsis, and bawdy pokes at the human condition, the Dogwoods bring enthusiasm and poignancy to every performance. Each has an established individual style — together they are an amplified juggernaut of poetic expression.
JASON L. AMMERMAN (Indianapolis), author of All Grown Up, Microphone or Bust!, and Battle Scarred, has been performing across the Midwest for over twenty years and has been a prime mover in Indy since the end of the last century. He is the cut-offs-sporting construction worker of the group and hammers all yer nails in an aesthetically pleasing fashion. KISS ARMY RULES!
TONY BREWER (Bloomington) is three ornamental Zen rock gardens stacked atop each other and wearing a trench coat. One ticket, please. He is author of The Great American Scapegoat, Little Glove in a Big Hand, and Hot Type Cold Read, and is director of Writers Guild at Bloomington. His one wish is for the genie to get back in the bottle. Go home, Genie, you’re drunk!
