When Walt Whitman published Leaves of Grass, it sparked controversy — his sexuality was promptly criticized and his poems were later censored for their explicit imagery. Through a unique combination of theater, dance, video and solo performance, the infamous poet’s life and work are presented with fascinating relevance and reveal his many sides. This is not the Whitman you learned about in literature class; this Whitman will challenge you to step out of the shadows and be your authentic self.
