SSF 2016 Featured Poet Rebecca Rubin

Rebecca has been performing and writing poetry since the age of 5. Passionate about literary arts and performing arts, this very ambitious young lady splits her busy schedule between school, competing in multiple and notable poetry SLAMs such as Louder Than A Bomb & Word UP, and dancing for Pro AM Dance Studios.

Whether she is on stage, on college poetry tours or killing it at open mics, this love-hate, ying -yang thematic poet is definitely a rising star.

Whether she's hosting a spoken word event, music festival, or playing the role of a santera or vixen, Deborah Magdalena makes every emotion super real. This performance artist has acquired impressive TV & Film credits for the past twenty years including Sesame Street (CTW), Apollo Comedy Hour (Tribune Entertainment), Safe Harbor (Warner Brothers), Striptease (Castle Rock), Holyman (Caravan), and For Love or Country (HBO). As a published spoken word artist Deborah has released three CDs, a chapbook, and the spoken word musical FUNKdalena. As an artist-activist she’s the founder of Spoken Soul Festival, a twelve year old, three-day festival that helps women artists go from novice to professionals. As an educator Deborah for the past eight years has led in-school presentations in numerous high schools for the National YoungArts Foundation, is the co-founder of Piano Slam, and led various workshops for local art organizations like Miami Light Project and Institute of Contemporary Art Miami. Most recently and for the seventh year in a row, she was invited by the Arsht Center and Ailey Arts & Education Foundation to serve as the Creative Communication instructor for Ailey Camp Miami.
