Take a Listen  –

Poetry organization Urban Word and New York Live Arts Theatre came together to create Journey to Journal. The Journey to Journal program selects around seven young poets who each write a one-man show. For this upcoming show, “Tattoo Me Human” the artists combined their original words with choreography and music to create a hybrid performance for the Live Arts stage.

I sat down with three of the performers- Aziza Barnes, Kedene McCloud and Marlon Cadore – in the lobby of New York Live Arts Theatre on a quick break from their all-day dress rehearsal to talk about their work, their poetry, and what it all means to their community.

Thank you to Urban Word and these three artist for letting me be a part of this rehearsal. “Tattoo Me Human” only has a short run early this week, but fortunately Urban Word will continue their Journey to Journal program with Live Arts, as well as their independent annual programming.
