CORVALLIS, Ore. – A performance by Climbing PoeTree will take place Thursday, April 10, from 7-9 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom at Oregon State University.
Climbing PoeTree interweaves spoken word, hip hop, pan flute beat boxing and award-winning multimedia theater to expose injustice, heal from violence, and make a better future visible, immediate and irresistible.
Boundary-breaking soul sisters Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman's performance explores diverse themes, including healing from state and personal violence; environmental justice; civil rights; sexuality; and women's empowerment. They weave together their voices to draw vital connections between shared struggles and common solutions in a critical moment in human history.
Praised by everyone from Angela Davis to Cornel West, Climbing PoeTree has performed around the world, and alongside performers and speakers including Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu and Vandana Shiva.
Climbing PoeTree will share multimedia excerpts of their latest theater production “Hurricane Season: the Hidden Messages In Water.”
