"Chicago, you are a tangle of voices, let me get lost in you and help me find myself."
Poetry in Motion is a collaboration between the slam poetry and hip-hop dance teams at UChicago and the result is everything I have ever wanted so I filmed it. This is Jessica Covil and John Lim performing “Hometown.”
I’ve always been a New Yorker at heart, but I’ve spent more time in Chicago lately than at home. Every time I watch this piece, I find myself getting closer to realizing what it is about each city that I can’t leave behind. This is probably my favorite piece from Poetry in Motion, because it resonates with me so personally (and holy crap Jessica and John are amazing).
