Project “Hurricane Season: The Hidden Messages in Water”

"Interweaving spoken-word poetry, video projection, dance, shadow art, and sound collages of personal testimonies to examine the “unnatural disasters” facing humanity through the kaleidoscope of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. Through a massive orchestration that mobilized inter-generational, multi-racial, and cross-class communities countrywide, they organized a 70-city tour that obliterated the boundaries between performance and activism.

On the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Alixa and Naima set out with an all-women crew in a recycled-vegetable-oil-powered bus on a mission to use their artistry to draw vital connections between shared struggles and common solutions in a critical moment in human history. By the end of 2009, they traveled over 12,000 miles, delivering "Hurricane Season” to nearly 10,000 people nationwide, and featured 200 local community organizations who shared their visionary work in a time desperate for transformation and ripe with possibility."

"Climbing PoeTree's acclaimed performance is composed of dual-voice spoken-word and multi-media theatre that explores diverse themes, including: healing from state and personal violence, spiritual expansion, social, environmental, racial, and sexual justice, and woman's empowerment. With flawless cadence and impeccable lyricism, Alixa and Naima weave together their voices to tell powerful stories of suffering and injustice, courage and love in a
world overcome with fear. Soul-stirring and heart-opening, the poetry they deliver challenges its listeners to remember their humanity, dissolves apathy with hope, exposes injustice, and helps heal our inner trauma so that we may begin to cope with the issues facing our communities."
