Fresh off a successful run at the National Black Theater of Harlem, we
will present Climbing PoeTree's Hurricane Season on Thursday September
24, 2009 at our Villa Victoria Center for the Arts. Through a tapestry
of spoken-word poetry, video projection, dance, shadow art, and a sound
collage of personal testimonies, "Hurricane Season" is a two womyn
multi-media show, popular education tour, and national organizing
strategy that 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. Will also
include discussion with local grassroots organizations through solution
cipher.
