One night only! The Irresponsible Birds of the Boston Poetry Slam– that’s RebeccaLynn, Joshua Elbaum, Zeke Russell, Terah Ehigiator, and Arianna Monet– will perform two sets of poetry alongside movement from VLA Dance. Neither interpretive nor literal, the two troupes explore buoying one another and dividing the concept of storytelling between genres in a dynamic collaboration.

This show happens on ONE NIGHT ONLY and is thanks to Urbanity X, an incubator program pairing dancers with other city artists and providing technical support. This program’s beautiful venue space is also courtesy of Urbanity.

Tickets are $15 and up for each of the two shows: click here for tickets. This intimate space is wheelchair-accessible with one single-gender bathroom. Because this space is not a bar, alcohol is available only by advance purchase! Please see our ticketing link to purchase drinks with your tickets.
