Poet-Linc Opening Night Performance


Opening night celebratory performance of Poet-Linc featuring world class poets Darian Dauchan, Erik Maldonado, and Shanelle Gabriel performing their own work. Directed by Cecilia Rubino.

Poet-Linc continues for the next five Wednesdays running from November 14th through December 12th. This vibrant battle of words celebrates talented young artists from the five boroughs performing their original poetry to the theme “I have a voice.” The Atrium will be jam-packed with readings by professional guest poets and three rounds of competitions that will be judged by appointed members of the audience and three official judges. All of this will lead to an exhilarating Grand Slam performance at the Target Free Thursday on December 13 to determine the first ever Lincoln Center Poet-Linc Grand Slam Champion.

Presented in collaboration with Curtis High School, El Puente, Girls Write Now, Global Writes, SAYA! (South Asian Youth Actions), and Urban Word.
