The Poetry Lounge is a free, multicultural open-forum for self-expression, inspiring young people to find their own voice and let it be heard. In The Power of Performance, viewers learn how spoken word artists create the performance of their work on stage. Watch the artists as they cover a wide range of subjects from overcoming the end of a relationship, domestic abuse, inner-city issues and more. Candid interviews explore techniques they use to connect with an audience, how they select poems to perform, and advice for first-time performers. Filmed before a live audience and produced in collaboration with respected educational advisors, The Poetry Lounge is an engaging and inspiring series for all who seek to understand the power of the spoken word.
