Climbing PoeTree


Climbing PoeTree has independently organized 28 national and international tours bringing their performance to thousands of people across the U.S. and abroad from Mexico to the Scotland, South Africa to Cuba. Their soul-stirring performances have been featured alongside visionary leaders and artists such as Angela Davis, Cornel West, Alice Walker, Alicia Keys, and Naomi Klein, among others. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Alixa and Naima created the award winning multimedia theater production Hurricane Season:The Hidden Messages in Water and traveled over 11,000 miles across the U.S. on a bus converted to run on recycled vegetable oil, merging theater and activism by creating a national network that gave voice to local organizations addressing and healing from the effects of unnatural disasters in their communities.
