What Dorphan as a spoken word poet has been able to create is a blend of free verse, flow, hip-hop, word-play and storytelling to explore historical, social, cultural, political and humanitarian issues while at the same time providing a light humorous touch that provides audiences an experience that is both thought provoking and entertaining.
