Poetry Night in Ann Arbor

  • Michigan League Mendelssohn Theatre 911 North University Avenue Ann Arbor, MI, 48109 United States (map)

Join us for an evening of spoken word poetry and live music by Ann Arbor/Ypsi youth! Our teen artists are working together for two months leading up to Poetry Night under the guidance of featured poets Anika Love, Lilly Kujawski and Aldo Leopoldo Pando Girard to present a powerful, multimedia production. This event will also be the book release for I Name This Body Mine, a collection of poems by the featured poets. This will be a show about reclamation- re-writing our trauma narratives, reclaiming the parts of us that are shamed and silenced, and re-imaging alternatives to our current reality. Come dream a new day with us!

$10/youth (21 & under)
$20/adults (22 & up)
*discounts available for groups of 5+ and/or school field trips
