Come be inspired by local poets as they collaborate in a performance designed to provide community engagement leading up to the Memphis tour of HAMILTON. Utilizing the artistic medium central to the show, future-thinking poets will explore the legacy theme of HAMILTON through the lens of history around Memphis. Poetic reflections on where we’ve been as a city will sculpt a bicentennial event that celebrates wisdom gleaned from the experiences of others as we look forward to the future. Contestants will perform original poetry developed in Orpheum workshops focusing on how today’s actions impact the future and the legacy that will be left behind.
Hosted by 2019 Artsy Awards Nominee for Best Male Rap/Hip-Hop Artist: Jay DaSkreet
Featuring: Writeous Soul, G-Nerd, Melodious, Sublime Sunshine, Bria B., Princeton James, and a #BringYourSoul collaborative performance by the OTG Poetic Society.
