Johnny D Trinh is an interdisciplinary and spoken word artist based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Exploring the use of spoken word, music, video, social media, movement, theatre, and creative technology- Johnny’s practice integrates the multi-layered realities within which we exist to create immersive spoken word experiences. Johnny’s pedagogy is rooted in the constant goal of fostering a sense of empowerment, agency, and compassion through socially engaged, community based art. Johnny recognizes that many of us are uninvited guests on this indigenous Turtle Island, and continually works to reconcile that through accountability, allyship, and integrity in practice. He creates opportunities to support marginalized communities cultivate their voice: “Pass the mic, or silence the future.”
Johnny D Trinh is an award-winning playwright, and author of several chapbooks. Johnny’s first audio album #undeniable will be released in July 2017.
