Hunger: Spoken word artist Ebony Stewart examines Hunger in her new one-woman show, premiering for two weeks only at The VORTEX. With a decade of experience in spoken word, slam poetry, and performance, Stewart has established herself as a vital voice in American theatre. Stewart has been touring professionally around the U.S. and now returns to Austin to roar her truth with this unapologetic cascade of poetry and theatre. Open up to the space between forgiveness and farewell. Directed by Zell Miller III.
