Chicago Slam Works teams up with the Chicago Sister Cities to celebrate French Connection 2016 in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the Sister Cities Paris relationship by hosting French poets who will perform throughout Chicago in early October. To appreciate every French syllable, Chicago Slam Works’ Speak'Easy poets work with the group to translate their poems using language and performance. The result is an lively, simultaneous translation that audiences can easily understand.
