Slam Connection in Chicago

The French Slam Connection returns to Chicago in 2018 for another wonderful cultural exchange organized by Zurg and Yopo of Ligue Slam de France and Marc Smith, founder of the Poetry Slam in Chicago. French Connection 2018 will be a captivating, simultaneous, dual-linguistic performance that transcends language, making both languages come to life with passion and meaning.

This year's event will feature performances by Frane's Au détour de Babel and Chicago's very own  One Poetic Voice.

Watch the video La ruée ver l'Art to learn more about the Ligue Slam de France. (Video in French)
