Nasra Adem is among Edmonton's most beloved emerging artists; her sincerity, authenticity, passion and wisdom is ever-apparent in her artistic practice. She occupies a unique space within the local and national arts communities as an impressive multi-disciplinary performer. Nasra is a true artist at heart, and has trained formally as a dancer, actress and vocalist, in addition to being a spoken word artist. In 2015, she completed her formal studies in the musical theatre program at Grant MacEwan University, where her stage presence, musicality and charisma made her a stand-out in the school's production of Big Fish, among others.
As a spoken word performer, Nasra has had the good fortune to share her personal narratives on stages all over her home city of Edmonton. In 2014, she was crowned the city's slam champion. She has performed her work at YouthCanSlam---Canada's national youth poetry festival---- in addition to other prestigious events such as the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word, NextFest and The Edmonton Poetry Festival. She is an artist of precocious talent, intellect and passion whose creative contributions have warmed the hearts of audiences in many of Canada's major cities. As a woman who is truly devoted to creative and spiritual authenticity, Nasra is excited to continue to use her artistic practice as a way of connecting with people, experiences, and herself.
