May is a super busy month for Harlem KW Project, LLC and we just wanted to share with you all that we are up to!
After 8 self-booked performances for the Harlem KW Tour, we will be performing our final show for the 2011-2012 year this Friday, May 4th at Amherst College in Massachusetts. Our first college tour has been amazing. Thank you to all of the schools and students that have welcomed us with open arms into your academic communities. We hope that we were able to educate you about gentrification as well as encourage you to support your local arts culture. The Amherst show will begin at 7PM and will be held in the Red Room. We are so excited that our understudy Joyelle will make her debut at this show! If you know anyone in the surrounding area of Amherst please spread the word! The college is about an hour from Boston. Be sure to follow us on twitter @HarlemKWProject for tweets while on tour! #HarlemKWTour
On May 16th at 7:30 pm, our very own Jaylene Clark will be competing in the Top Dog competition at the Apollo’s Amateur night. Jaylene will perform her poem "SoHa" from Renaissance in the Belly of a Killer Whale in the Top Dog competition! She needs to place in the top three to advance to the Super Top Dog contest where she competes for $10,000! If Jaylene wins the $10,000 she plans to donate a portion of the money to HKWP, as well as a portion to supporting the arts in Harlem. To support Jaylene you may purchase tickets via Ticketmaster, or avoid the fees by purchasing at the Apollo Theater Box Office. The Box Office is open from 10AM to 6PM on weekdays and 12PM to 5PM on Saturdays. Let's get Jaylene to that Super Top Dog title!! Thanks in advance for your support!
