MEGA Corazon 2021

In celebration of National Poetry Month, URBAN-15 is hosting the annual spoken word marathon featuring San Antonio’s premiere performance poets, Mega Corazon. 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. This year’s MEGA CORAZON will take place every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting April 5th from 10am-1pm (youth focus) and again from 6-10pm (general audience.) Mega Corazon can be viewed for free online at urban15.org/live-stream or facebook.com/urban15/live. Featured Poets include nationally-recognized poetry slam champions Amalia Ortiz, Anthony “The Poet” Flores, and Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson; National Poetry Month SA organizer Jim LaVilla-Havelin, Eduardo Garza, local San Antonio author Marisol Cortez, and many other talented San Antonio poets. A full listing is available on our website at urban15.org. Performances for Middle and High School students are designed for in-class or at-home-viewing All MEGA CORAZON segments are free and can be viewed online at facebook.com.urban15/live or http://urban15.org/live-stream. We are also happy to set up interviews profiling individual performers. If interested, please contact us at (210) 736-1500 or events@urban15.org. Visual content and photos are available.
