be here; be poetry

DIORAMA is NYC's immersive poetry series of intimacy and vulnerability. A world where we dispose of the podium and stage, and interweave you in a space built of language, shape, and sound.

We believe in artistry. That poetry is an intimate art, bodily, and specific to its creator just as dance and singing are. We present evocative poetry from those who bring startling imagery and sensitivity to their sound.

We are the hull of a ship, inside, the floor of the forest at night, the act of revealing. We are poetry come to life.
