HBO’s new show Brave New Voice captures the excitement and raw talent from the poets of the 2010 National Slam Team Championship. Excited? So are we.
Tears, talent, intense emotions and art. These mega talented teens and their mentors show you what it’s all about and shed new light on teen angst.
Hosted by Common and Rosario Dawson, the 60 minute special trails the poetry journey of four teams (from Denver, Albuquerque, the Bay Area and New York City) in a five day festival that includes poetry workshops, intimate slams and stage performances.
Tune in to watch the behind the scenes footage of performers, the four teams meeting and bonding (aww!) and of course, the heartbreakingly beautiful performances of these artists.
It all comes down to a live battle at the Saba Theatre in LA. Who will win the championship?
Don’t miss the premiere of Brave New Voices 2010 which captures all the excitement and poetry from the 2010 National Slam Team Championship.
See it Saturday, October 23 at 11 PM Eastern and Pacific only on HBO.
