Writer and actor Modesto Flako Jimenez performs his autobiographical and uncompromising collection of poetry, Oye Para mi Querido Brooklyn (Listen For My Dear Brooklyn). Hiding out in his abuelita’s bathroom, Flako, a young Dominican man, escapes into the memories of losing his culture and self to the gentrified blocks of Bushwick. Oye For My Dear Brooklyn is performed in both English and Spanish through a series of poems, video projections and music. Lyrical and savage, Flako’s poetry is populated with immigrants, drug dealers, condoritos, tiguerasos, mothers and sons, all asking the same question, “What’s my moral worth?”

Tickets: $25 general / $15 student with ID.
