$15 in advance, $25 at the door

Recitation of world poetry with Doug Von Koss, Barry and Maya Spector, Larry Robinson, Kay Crista, Maurice Wren, and musicians Christine Tulis and Kem Stone

A Poetic Conversation: For fifteen years, Rumi’s Caravan has inspired audiences, weaving together poems by Rumi, Hafiz, Machado, Rilke, Yeats, Mary Oliver, Joy Harjo, Naomi Shihab Nye, David Whyte, and other poets across the world.

The presenters create an improvised poetic conversation with musical accompaniment. Moving through moods of prayer and grief to humor and celebration, the Caravan always highlights the beauty of the spoken word.

All of our performances benefit local non-profit organizations. This year, our second in Oakland, we are proud to partner with Youth Speaks, an organization that produces local and national youth poetry slams, festivals and reading series.
