RYG: Who is Nicole Elmore behind the poetic writings?
NB: I am a mother, daughter, sister, friend, funny more than people could imagine. Most of all I love to laugh…….
RYG: What is the concept behind your poetic theater, “You can’t hurt me NO MORE”?
NB: To get people to the next level of knowing who they are and realizing the power that lies within themselves..
RYG: Who or what event (s) inspired you to write such a powerful piece?
NB: My trials brought to this place of writing. I now realize that I had to go to that place of pain in order to get to the place I am now. If I never experienced my trials. I would have continue to hide the woman I am. I can finally let her shine because I have been hiding her entirely too long.. I am embracing the woman I am at this moment… ( ahhhh It feels so good)
RYG: What are some of the feed back you received from “You can’t hurt me No More?
NB: All the feedback is positive. The most important thing is that people can relate. Someone said to me I love You Can’t Hurt Me No More because it’s different and it heals the soul…
RYG: Why is this issue so important for men as well?
NB: Because men hurt also. Men have voices that also need to be heard! Men have pain. I wrote a poem title Walk in a man’s shoes. That was a powerful moment, because all the men in the audience could relate. If our men our healed then our sons will heal..
RYG: What’s next for you and the fabulous 12?
NB: We are so excited about our show in North Carolina. Excuse me but I am just so exited!
