Crooked Axis

Friday, April 3rd, Forward Arts’ youth spoken word collective, WordCrew, presents Crooked Axis: a performance showcase themed by the seasons of change. Crooked Axis will showcase 16 poems that reflect the varying moods and tones of the poets’ work in relation to the moods of the four seasons.
WordCrew is the collective of youth spoken word poets that co-curate the wildly popular teen open mic, Freshhhh Heat, and are the leaders of the youth spoken word movement in Baton Rouge.  Start your holiday weekend right with a dynamic show that includes music, monologue and high quality performance poetry!
