Rhode Island's Hurricane Season tour stop will take place at the Mixed Magic
Theatre on Tuesday September 29th & Wednesday 30th. Doors open 6:45pm
Showtime 7:00p.m.

Mixed Magic Theatre 171 Main Street Pawtucket, Rhode Island 02860

Through a tapestry of spoken-word poetry, video projection, dance, shadow
art, and a sound collage of personal testimonies, Hurricane Season connects
the issues that surfaced in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to the
unnatural disasters disenfranchised communities are experiencing nationwide
and worldwide on a daily basis.

Hurricane Season tackles global warming, environmental injustice, policing,
prisons, militarization, corporate domination, gentrification, and
displacement as they manifest from one gulf to another, with a powerful tale
of resistance, resilience, creativity and survival. Rhythmic and uplifting,
revealing and deeply moving, Hurricane Season seeks not to captivate
audiences, but to liberate them.

A community solutions segment features Rhode Island based grassroots groups
working to address themes highlighted in the performance. The
“solution-cipher” forum will illuminates solutions and efforts that are
already underway and cross-pollinate creative strategies for
self-determination, turning passion generated in the show into community

*“This show is not an event to be missed! It has been described as
"life-changing" by so many. It will blow your mind and feed your spirit. See
you all there!”* Julian Rodríguez-Drix, Alliance for Climate Education,
Providence, RI

*“A great performance! I saw it in August in New York City. If you can make
it, you won't be disappointed!” *Madelyn Hoffman, Director New Jersey Peace

*“Hurricane Season pounds with intensity and fierceness and love. Naima and
Alixa are truly forces of nature, delivering a performance that will move
you to tears and action.” *Tia Lessin & Carl Deal, Directors of “Trouble in
the Water” & producers of “Fahrenheit 9-11”

Tickets: $12-25 sliding scale at door (No one turned away for lack of funds
