Bowles Performing Arts Series Presents: Mayhem Poets

January 6, 2006

The Bowles Performing Arts Series at Bentley College presents Mayhem Poets on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 in the Koumantzelis Auditorium, Lindsay Hall at 7:30 p.m.


The Mayhem Poets is a diverse, lively and courageous collective of young writers and artists devoted to bringing slam and performance poetry into university, high school and middle school classrooms. Performance poetry is an accessible, appealing art form that can motivate students to foster an appreciation for both classic and contemporary poetic/theatrical expression.


Utilizing hip-hop rhythms and dynamic theatrical techniques, the Mayhem Poets have developed powerful performances and workshops to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to craft and perform original poetry.


The Mayhem Poets have brought their experience to such notable venues as the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord, New Hampshire, The Cincinnati Arts Center, the Sangamon Auditorium in Springfield, Illinois, the State Theater of New Jersey, and Washington National Cathedral.




Individual tickets are $3 for students, $5 for faculty and $7 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased at the Bentley Student Center Information Desk in advance or at the Koumantzelis Auditorium Box Office in Lindsay Hall one hour prior to each show.
