Spoken-word artist, poet and activist Andrea Gibson will visit Charlotte for a performance on Jan. 23. Gibson, known widely for her focus on gender, politics and LGBT equality, will be accompanied by singer-songwriter Chris Pureka.
Gibson’s work has been featured on BBC, Air America, C-SPAN and others. She has released a fifth album, “Flower Boy,” and her second book, “The Madness Vase.” Promoters say Gibson’s “poems continue to be a rally cry for action and a welcome mat at the door of the heart’s most compassionate room.”
Gibson and Pureka will perform at Neighborhood Theatre. Tickets are $13 advance and $16 at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m. Purchase tickets online at carolinatix.org, neighborhoodtheatre.com or by phone 704-372-1000.
