Soul-stirring Spoken Word
8:00 PM Tuesday, Nov 13, 2012. Lipinsky Auditorium
WITH FLAWLESS CADENCE and impeccable lyricism, Alixa and Naima weave together their voices to tell powerful stories of suffering and injustice, courage and love in a world overcome with fear. Climbing PoeTree's acclaimed performance is composed of dual-voice spoken-word poetry and multimedia theatre that explores diverse themes, including healing from violence, spiritual expansion, women's empowerment, and social, environmental and racial justice. The poetry they deliver challenges its listeners to remember their humanity, dissolves apathy with hope, and addresses difficult issues in their communities.
Welcome remarks and poem by UNC Asheville alumnus and spoken word artist Griffin Payne ('10)
Opening act by UNC Asheville's own Cory Thompson and Colette Heiser, winners of the SAIL Slam Poetry Competition.
