Mega Corazon 2022 Brings San Antonio Spoken Word to the World
As part of National Poetry Month, URBAN-15 again is hosting Mega Corazón the annual spoken-word marathon featuring San Antonio’s premiere performance poets.
Celebrating a hybrid San Antonio poetic tradition that combines street, classical, and slam performance styles, Mega Corazón is frontal, improvisational, at times painful, and often choreographed for a highly visual impact.
