Hurricane Season:
the Hidden Messages in Water

Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman, the Brooklyn-based,
internationally-acclaimed performance duo Climbing PoeTree, make a tour stop
in Boston with a ground-breaking two-woman show that obliterates the
boundaries between performance and activism.

Created by spoken-word/performance artists and activists Alixa and Naima,
Hurricane Season: The Hidden Messages in Water interweaves spoken word
poetry, sound collage, shadow art, dance, film and animation to explore
critical issues facing humanity through the kaleidoscope of Hurricane
Katrina and its aftermath. A riveting story about unnatural disaster and a
great shift in universal consciousness, Hurricane Season connects 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. A “solutions-cipher” follows every show where
audience members participate in a dialog featuring local grassroots
organizations, visionaries, and healers to draw vital connections between
shared struggles and common solutions in a critical moment in human history.

$12 - $25 suggested donation. For more information or tickets please call
