Chaos Theory: Unbroken

South Florida’s most prolific poetry group in their first full presentation 

Solo, duet, and trio combinations of poetry and performance will come together when Chaos Theory: Unbroken is performed at the Main Street Playhouse in Miami Lakes, on May 20th and 21st. Conundrum Stages will present the prominent poetic ensemble in an exciting stand-alone showcase of material the group has composed since its inception in 2008.

Chaos Theory is a collective comprised of several of South Florida’s most dynamic spoken word artists. The group was created in 2008 by poets Mr. Rigz (Reagan Mendoza) and Raff Adams (Adam Freilich). It has since grown with the addition of Flow Diva (Rachel Finley), Anon De-Evolution (Jean Marcellot), and Mori Taiye. Raff Adams left the group in early 2011.

Conundrum Stages and Chaos Theory’s relationship began in 2009 when the group contributed to a variety showcase in Oakland Park. They have also been the anchor team for Conundrum Stages’ annual poetry event, The SpeakOut, and contributed to the company’s 5th anniversary event at the Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale in 2013. Conundrum is proud to provide Chaos Theory the platform for their first ever production; hope is that this performance of Unbroken will be a launching pad for something beyond.

The poets of Chaos Theory each come from different ethnic, socioeconomic, religious, educational and cultural backgrounds. Their personal interests, points of view and styles are as diverse as any group of individuals can be. Yet they have found a way to use all their combined life experiences to create a brand of poetry that is honest, bold, vibrant and soulful. Individually and collectively, they perform nationally, from university stages to packed poetry clubs. Some notable performances and accolades have been: NBC, WSVN/FOX, NPR, University of Miami, University of Illinois-Chicago, Duke University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Minnesota-St. Paul, The National Poetry Slam and Festival, Miami Book Fair International, South Florida’s Lit Walk and many others.

In 2011, Chaos Theory placed third at the Southeastern Regional Poetry Slam (the second largest poetry festival in the country). In December 2015, Chaos Theory were featured performers during Art Basel, the country’s biggest art festival. They have also been nominated for a 2016 Florida Entertainment Legend Award.

Chaos Theory are very involved in non-profit work, donating both time and money to organizations such as Operation Helping Hands Miami, HOPE Inc, Pink Strydes, Soul Survivors Annual Benefit and Fundraiser, CAPE Arts Partnership in Education and Young Arts Miami.

Chaos Theory aim to not only provide comfort and understanding of the uncertainties of daily life, but also to address the complex socio-political issues that affect our world, with the underlying reminder that through the human experience, we are all connected.

Both shows will begin at 8pm.  Advanced admission tickets are $10, tickets purchased at the door will be $15. The Main Street Playhouse is located at 6766 Main Street, in Miami Lakes.
