Poetry River is an intercultural, mixed-media, performance art installation, in celebration of humankind’s capacity for transformation, transcendence, and renewal. Based on the metaphor of an eternal river, a beautiful, immersive experience of collective memory, place, and identity will be created, alongside the Chicago River, at the historic Riverside Plaza, in the heart of Chicago. Leading cultural performers will join world-acclaimed poet James Ragan; internationally-celebrated singer-songwriter, pianist, and music ambassador, Johnny Rodgers, Music Director; Emmy Award-winning choreographer, Mark Howard, Artistic Director, Dance; the iconic voice of Chicago, Bill Kurtis, narrator; and internationally-renowned, fine art, architectural lighting artist Marco Rotelli, who will illuminate the environment and the river to encapsulate the audience, in this dramatic, experiential event.
