Join us for Button Poetry Live on Monday October 1 at our first-ever show at Strike Theater in Northeast Minneapolis! October’s feature will be The Asia Project. Hosted by Sarah Ogutu.
About the feature: Since 2009, The Asia Project has toured over 450 colleges with an acoustic music poetry act that has amazed audiences all over the country. On the microphone is Asia Samson: writer, poet and part-time ninja. He has been seen on HBO Def Poetry Jam and has shared the stage with such artists as Janelle Monae, Jill Scott, DMX, Mos Def, Dead Prez & KRS-One. Accompanying him on the guitar is his brother-in-law Jollan who uses music to create an atmosphere that brings poetry to emotional levels you would never expect. Together they have been featured on TEDx, Button Poetry, & have worked with companies like Disney and To Write Love On Her Arms. They have broken college-booking records for the most booked poetry act garnering them the awards of APCA College Performer of the Year and thrice APCA Spoken Word Artist of the Year. Okay, so maybe Asia isn’t the ninja we said he was but we can guarantee- you will have never seen them coming.
This Button Poetry Live will NOT include a workshop.
