Spoken-word star Shane Koyczan brings his latest release to Duncan Thursday, Oct. 15 with a show at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre starting at 7:30 p.m.

The world took notice of Koyczan during his performance of We Are More at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

More recently, Koyczan’s anti-bullying To This Day project video went viral reaching over 14 million views.

His newest output, Silence is a Song I Know All The Words To is a thought provoking piece that looks at cyber-bullying and explores the effect of this new breed of abuse on the digital generation.

In addition to offering a riveting stage performance, Koyczan will make himself available to meet his public, signing his books after the performance.

Tickets are $32.50 each at the Cowichan Ticket Centre.
