MAHWAH, N.J. — The Angelica and Russ Berrie Center for Performing and Visual Arts on the Ramapo College of New Jersey campus is pleased to announce the slate of artists for its continuing virtual series Made in Jersey. The next artist broadcast in the series will feature poet Michelle Myers on Thursday, February 11 at 8 p.m. The streams will be available through YouTube and are free.

Made in Jersey features a series of New Jersey based performing artists sharing new works-in-progress. After each broadcast, audiences will be able to join Lisa Campbell, Berrie Center Director, and the artist for that evening in a live chat where they can ask questions of the artists.

Michelle Myers is an award-winning poet, community activist, and educator. As a founding member of the Asian American female spoken word poetry group Yellow Rage, she was one of the first Asian American women to appear on HBO’s Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry. In her performance memoir “Mudang Magic,” Michelle Myers explores how words can hang onto grief and how memory can create a landscape of both loss and healing.

Additional slated performances include choreographer and classical Indian dancer Kiran Rajagopalan, choreographer and dancer Kyle Marshall, and singer-songwriter Alexa Marino.

Audiences can view the broadcasts on the You-Tube channel Ramapo College Berrie Center. While events are free, viewers are encouraged to consider making a gift to the Contemporary Arts Fund or the COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund through the Ramapo Foundation at www.ramapo.edu/give
