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-show connecting 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.
Alixa and Naima, the Brooklyn-based, internationally-acclaimed performance duo, Climbing PoeTree (www.climbingpoetree.com), completed a 51 city national tour with this ground-breaking, multi-media show in 2009 that obliterates the boundaries between performance and activism. “Hurricane Season: the hidden messages in water” will have a few appearances through out the Northeast and Midwest this year (2010)! stay posted at www.HurricaneSeasontour.com
“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.
