Readings and Performances


Some stones, say poets, weep like humans. Some humans never weep at all. Elana Bell’s work is mesmerizing and important, piercing the heart. Her words, eyes, voice and movement could make stones weep and allow humans to remember what life and love are really all about. Hers is a true poetry of peace.
— Amichai Lau Lavie, Founding Director of Storahtelling

Elana brings her strong theatre training and soulful presence wherever she goes. She has been a featured poet in numerous venues throughout the United States and abroad including the Bowery Poetry Club, NuYorican Poets Café, Bar 13, Hunter College, Teachers and Writers Collaborative, and Sarah Lawrence College among others. In addition to her work as a poet, Elana has performed plays nationally and internationally, touring Japan, England, and the United States since the age of twelve. She also performs regularly with PUP, a collective of poets dedicated to bringing poetry to unexpected public spaces, and sings with the a cappella trio Saheli.

Elana recently created and performed a collaborative, multi-disciplinary performance piece based on the poems in her first collection, Eyes, Stones which debuted at her book release party on May 3, 2012 and is also available for booking. For more information, click here.
