Poetic Resistance

Poetry into improv. Improv into poetry.

A poet performs

Into improv scenes we dive
Blossom a new poem

Poetic Resistance won’t give up. We won’t stay throwed. We commit to honoring the truths of our poets’ art.

Join us on a journey of poetry and improv. A local poet performs a piece. Inspired by the poem, our ensemble of improvisers performs scenes. Sparked by the scenes, another poet creates and performs an impromptu poem to close our show.

Special thanks to Stacy Hayashi and Sabahat Chaudhary, whose transformative work made Poetic Resistance possible.
