Sister Spit är den anrika spoken/word/performance/litteratur-truppen från USA, med den hyllade författaren Michelle Tea i spetsen. Under hösten 2009 kommer Sister Spit till Europa med en ny line-up av queer/grrrl poeter, skribenter, konstnärer och zineskapare. Inspiererade av den legendariska Sister Spit-turnén på 90-talet presenterar den nya generationen en hel rad av oetablerade och etablerade feministiska talanger på scen.
De hittills bekräftade medverkande är som följer (på engelska):
"The much beloved Michelle Tea is nothing if not prolific. Author of three memoirs, a book of poetry, editor of two anthologies and contributor to dozens has most recently collaborated on an illustrated novel, and has been working on both a screenplay and a science fiction novel. Her work is often brutally honest, both about growing up in impoverished Chelsea, Massachusetts, and in writing about her sexuality in a way that often gets her labeled "transgressive." She was awarded a Lambda Literary Award for Best Lesbian Fiction and was co-founder of the now legendary all-girl poetry roadshow Sister Spit" - www.bookslut.com
