The Poetry Project

The Poetry Project  is a yearly project made as an outside-the-box short film production.  


Axial Theatre has co-produced a short film directed by Cady McClain titled "Robust Admixture" - compiled from work by Westchester poet Laureate B.K. Fischer's novella of poems, "Ceive." The film shares the power of poetry to inspire works of art that bring awareness to the issues of climate change, gun violence, and viral pandemics.


The film is now in post-production.
