The Spoken World

The Spoken World is a full evening of performance with United States Artists Rockefeller Fellow and 2011 Alpert Award winner Marc Bamuthi Joseph. Through choreopoem, Joseph articulates the story of achieving manhood in the United States through the lens of hip hop, global travel, and urban environmental health.


Marc Bamuthi Joseph is one of America’s most vital voices in performance, arts education, and artistic curation. Joseph developed several poetry-based works for the stage including Word Becomes Flesh and Scourge. Joseph has appeared as a commentator on NPR, and carried adjunct professorships at Stanford University, Lehigh University, and the University of Wisconsin.
