BUFFALO – A Spoken Word Tribute by Dana Ingebretson

A spoken word tribute to Buffalo by Dana Ingebretson has managed to capture the look, the feel, the vibe and the oft-indescribable nature of this city. Buffalo means so many things to so many people. At the same time, there are underlying currents that we can all associate with. Ingebretson has taken many of Buffalo’s idiosyncrasies and cobbled them together brilliantly, through a seamless, flowing poetic episode that speaks to each and every one of us. 

It’s a brief piece that really nicely shares the scope of the city.

Thanks to Kelly Atkinson (Green Window City) for passing along a project called CreativeMornings/Buffalo; this spoken word tribute was part of Buffalo’s application to join the global CreativeMornings network.

This latest production was published on June 3. A few of Atkinson’s teammates worked on the production for fun on the side – the result was a collaboration between Ingebretson, Yeah! Buffalo, and Urban Prairie Films.
