MAYHEM POETS

Monday, February 6, 2023
10am & 12:45pm | Recommended for grades PreK-2

Experience a mind-boggling spoken-word performance unlike anything else and specially modified for younger audiences!

Called “an amazing ride” by the New York Times, the Mayhem Poets are theatre-trained, comedically-gifted, lyrical virtuosos who seamlessly blend raw elements of hip hop, theatre, improv, and stand-up comedy to tell gut-wrenching truths that leave audiences inspired and moved.
 
The Mayhem Poets’ unique approach to spoken word has landed them feature spots on the Today Show and Eyewitness News after winning first place and a grant for 100k in the Microsoft Idea Wins Challenge in 2006. Since then they’ve been touring internationally and spreading their mission to reshape society’s view of poetry. 50-60 minutes.
