CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: Poetry, Spoken Word, Language Arts.

These poets bring their brand of mayhem to spoken word. The group’s performance, dubbed “an amazing ride” by The New York Times, blends the raw elements of hip hop, theater, improv and stand-up comedy to tell gut wrenching truths that leave audiences forever changed.

The Mayhem Poets’ unique approach to spoken word won them first place and a $100,000 grant in the Microsoft Idea Wins Challenge in 2006. They have been featured on the Today Show and Eyewitness News and tour internationally to spread their mission to reshape society’s view of poetry.
