The Encyclopedia Show is a monthly, multi-genre, age-integrated presentation of creative performances on a central theme taken from an ACTUAL encyclopedia. Each contributor is assigned a specific subset of the central theme on which to write and perform. Participating artists perform poems, monologues, songs, rants, etc... Quirkiness and creativity are welcomed, as are fashionable falsehoods.
The Encyclopedia Show is also a world-wide event, started in Chicago and now encompasses at least a dozen cities.
It was created with three initial goals:
1) get slam poets to perform for non-initiated audiences
2) get slam poets to perform alongside other artists from across disciplines, genres, schools, neighborhoods
3) have fun, for god’s sake.
Since Fall 2011, the AZ show has taken place at The Empty Space in Tempe and is sponsored by the Hugh Downs School of Human Communication. The creative team includes Fargo Tbakhi, Joley Hamilton, and Jaime Faulkner under the direction of Jennifer Linde.

The Empty Space Theater is located in the ASU Media and Arts Building, at the corner of Rural Rd and E University Dr. (By Buffalo Wild Wings) in Tempe.
