THE REVIVAL: A SALON STYLED POETRY TOUR OF QUEER WOMEN ARTISTS
With dynamic performances from poets and musicians alike, THE REVIVAL weaves a salon-styled night of libations and genuine fellowship. Reminiscent of independent poetry tours like SisterSpit…Saltlines… the iconic Def Poetry Jam, The Revival is a unique arts experience as each concert takes place in an actual home. A collective of queer women artists on a national, 10 day expedition, The Revival caravan honors a queer tradition. They not only demand safe space, they create it.
A group of individuals connected not through sexuality, color, so-called gender identity— but through language. It’s poetry that dismisses our diﬀerences and shakes up the system. It’s music that opposes the regular, hip-hop rhetoric of what women are to do and be. It’s the word that came ﬁrst. And the women we celebrate the day after that, and the day after that forever.
This tour looks so dope. The traveling troupe features T’ai Freedom Ford (rapper / spoken word artist), B. Steady (songstress / filmmaker) and JONQUILLE “SOLSIS & DAPPHO THE FLOW-ER” RICE (Singer, bassist, poet and audio engineer, educator & more). The tour also joins hands with remarkable women across the country as hosts, performers, and collaborators including: Mobile Homecoming Projects’s Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Atlanta’s Fi Williams, Chicago’s EarthPearl Collective and more.

NEW YORK: OCTOBER 5 with Charan Morris
