Climbing PoeTree w/ Special Guests

Thursday, June 21, 2018
The Old Church Concert Hall
8PM show // 7:30PM doors
All Ages

Based in Brooklyn, NY with a dedication to the whole planet, Climbing PoeTree harnesses creativity as the antidote to destruction through their award-winning spoken word, boundary-breaking music, and multimedia hip hop theater. Co-creators Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman have independently organized more than 30 national and international tours, taking their work from South Africa to Cuba, the UK to Mexico, and throughout the U.S. including 11,000 miles toured on a bus converted to run on recycled vegetable oil.

Climbing PoeTree has stirred crowds at diverse venues from the Brooklyn Academy of Music to the United Nations, Harvard University to Rikers Island Prison. They have been featured alongside powerhouses such as Alicia Keys, Janelle Monáe, Erykah Badu, Little Dragon, Talib Kweli, Maxwell, Madonna, Goapele, Rising Appalachia, T.I., Dead Prez, and Angela Davis, who writes:

"Each time I have the pleasure of attending a performance by Climbing PoeTree, I feel enriched, renewed, and inspired. Alixa and Naima insist that poetry can change the world—and it is true that the urgency, power and beauty of their words impel us to keep striving for the radical futures toward which they gesture."

Climbing PoeTree's art is a tool to expose injustice, and make a better future visible, immediate, and irresistible.
