Poetic Portraits of a Revolution

Poetic Portraits of a Revolution

Multi-media and spoken word performance, a lens into Egypt, Tunisia, Long Roads to Freedom.

Friday and Saturday, Gerrard Hall, UNC Campus

8 PM

* Can fill 1 of your required performances for this semester.

(*Incredible work – exactly in the theme of our course in liberation performance, these young men – students, poets, performance facilitators – traveled to Egypt and Tunisia to document the tactics, images of revolution, the poetics and lived proverbs of people fighting for self-determination. I do not know what it will hold, but I know I respect these artists a *lot* and want you to get a chance to see them in action, for your own learning).
