Kris Lew: My roots in spoken word are firmly anchored in the soil of the Lower East Side, far beneath the glass-and-steel edifices that are now terrorizing it. Formerly a professional modern dancer with NY- and CA-based choreographers, I spent seven years as a paper-pusher with a front-row seat to the maddening sideshow that is NYC’s unjust criminal justice system. Much of my free time is spent engaged in anti-war and anti-police brutality activism. I believe deeply in the exquisite beauty that unrecognized people create every day.
