Huge thanks to all who came out to hear the stunning cast perform Octagon by Kristiana Colón at last weekend's Cafe Bohemia play readings!  A gorgeous evening of play, poetry and the spoken word to round out 2014.

As the new year peeks around the calendar, happy holidays to all, and we hope to see you back when 2015 arrives!

Poetry Slam Meets Play

Octagon by Kristiana ColÓn

TUCSON: 8:30pm Saturday, Dec. 13th @ The Temple Lounge
PHOENIX: 7pm Sunday, Dec. 14th @ Herberger Theater Center, KAX Stage

Winner of ATC's 2014 National Latino Playwriting Award

Against the backdrop of a last-minute poetry slam competition, eight young poets traverse the stage and the tightropes of their braided desires.  With three minutes to sway the judges, they must decide which is more important:  the points or the poetry, free speech or celebrity, all while asking the cost of the spectacle of ripping open our wounds.

Featuring spoken word artists, slam poets, and actors from across Arizona, including Tucson's own Teré Fowler-Chapman, Ezra Letra and Marc David Pinate.
