Voices of Chicago: Slam Poetry (Chicago Poetry Center’s Poets with Class) – Some of Chicago’s best poets bring poetry to life through their own original work and inspire students to create their own version of Chicago through writing. Building on Chicago’s unique heritage as the stomping grounds of many great writers and the birthplace of modern performance (“Slam”) poetry, Poetry Center presents an interactive and engaging three-part performance in Voices of Chicago. This show weaves in a brief history of the city’s poetic heritage, a showcase of diverse styles of contemporary slam poetry, and an audience-interactive poetry game that culminates in a micro-slam.
