Poet-turned-rapper GAZR reaches through digital space, through the metastasizing web of mediation, and pulls the audience into his imagination. With the assistance of a small orchestra, he live-composes a rap mixtape—a digital document of the poet’s relationship to language, race, and technology.

James Allister Sprang is a multi-disciplinary artist and graduate of The Cooper Union. Currently based in Philadelphia, Sprang has performed in venues such as the Apollo Theater, The Brooklyn Museum, The Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, The Miami Art Museum and Abrons Arts Center.

All orders subject to $3 per ticket service fee and $1.50 per ticket facility fee. There is a $5 fee for UTR packs. Service fees for single tickets are waived at the Box Office window.
