  • The Octagon. The fiercest arena of lyrical battle on the planet, where eight poets bare all to become immortal. But backstage, as relationships fray and silence resounds, whose freedom is worthy of speech?

    Tickets:  $25


    ★★★★★! (out of 5) "When these seven slam poets battle it out, Chicago audiences are the real winners."
    Time Out Chicago

    ★★★1/2! (out of 4) "Made of spit and spirit, cunning and chaos, deliverance and destruction, Kristiana Rae Colon's 'Octagon' takes apart the world of slam poetry with bravado and brio."
    Chicago Tribune

    "Astounding verbal athleticism... Shakes audiences from the comfort of conventions with furious, ugly beauty...Recommended!"

    "The richest, sharpest language this side of Hamilton!...high style and charisma!"
    Windy City Times
