Alixa and Naima's acclaimed performance is composed of dual-voice poems, award winning multimedia and theater that explore diverse themes, including: healing from state and personal violence, environmental justice, civil rights, spirituality, global politics, and woman's empowerment.

Through a tapestry of spoken-word poetry, video projection, and movement choreography, "Hurricane Season" connects the issues that surfaced in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to the “unnatural disasters” disenfranchised communities are experiencing nationwide and worldwide on a daily basis. Stirring images and stunning verse take audiences on a voyage of unthinkable tragedy and undeniable promise from the eye of a systemic storm.

"Hurricane Season pounds with intensity and fierceness and love. Naima and Alixa are truly forces of nature, delivering a performance that will move you to tears and to action," Producers of Fahrenheit 9-11 and Directors of Academy Award nominated post-Katrina film Trouble the Water testify to the extraordinary impact of their expression.
