Angela Davis: “Each time I have the pleasure of attending a performance by Climbing PoeTree, I feel enriched, renewed, and inspired. Alixa and Naima insist that poetry can change the world – and it is true that the urgency, power and beauty of their words impel us to keep striving for the radical futures toward which they gesture.”

The performances of Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman, together known as the powerhouse duo Climbing PoeTree (USA), are chock full of verbal and visual resistance, mercilessly exposing crucial themes like misrepresentation, climate change and social injustice. With Hurricane Season, a compelling show halfway between performance art and activism, they seize the opportunity to make a difference now in how we treat ourselves, each other and the planet. “Art is our weapon, our medicine, our voice, and our vision.”
