Growing Concerns Poetry Collective celebrates the release of its inaugural recording WE HERE. Fusing music with narrative, lyrical, and hip hop poetry, Mykele Deville, McKenzie Chinn, and Jeff Austin share the genre-defying work they have created and performed throughout Chicago since coming together at the start of 2017. Growing Concerns is poems + sound. Growing Concerns is #poemsforthepeople.
LookOut is Steppenwolf’s performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. Emerging artists and performance legends, quintessential Chicago companies and young aspiring ensembles, familiar Steppenwolf faces and new friends.
