Six stellar poets gather on stage to conjure a cipher of the spoken word, challenging the performance concept that tenderness requires a giving away of oneself. MC'd by Grace Taylor, each poet takes turns to riff off the final line of the previous poem. 

Featuring Kyla Dela Cruz, Stevie Davis-Tana, Carrie Rudzinski, Dietrich Soakai, and Jahra Wasasala.

Venue and bar open from 6pm. Eligible for concession pass selection.
