440 Gallery is thrilled to present poet/storyteller Darryl Alladice in an afternoon of powerful, thought-provoking performance and artistry through words. Percussionist Deborah Yambala will accompany Darryl.
Darryl’s readings are informed by his training as an actor and storyteller—he brings his poetry alive when he reads. For the past two years Darryl has been curating a monthly spoken-word series at the gallery, as a component of One Breath Rising, a non-profit dedicated to the presentation of arts in the African American tradition. Alladice grew up in Harlem and Brooklyn and his work has been produced at various venues around the city including Schomburg Research Center, Queens Public Library, and Dwyer Cultural Center. Darryl is a volunteer at LiveArts/New York where he is part of a team of teaching artists who work with students from the James Baldwin School to introduce them to theater and dance arts.
Please join us the second Sunday of every month for 440 Gallery’s jazz and spoken word series curated by Darryl Alladice.
