Rupi Kaur: World Tour

(Updated April 13, 2022 at 10AM) This event has moved from Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall to the Newmark Theatre—located across Main Street from Schnitzer Hall, inside Antoinette Hatfield Hall at 1111 SW Broadway Ave. Current ticket holders will receive new tickets within 7 business days. 


Through the power of her voice, Rupi Kaur brings a captivating performance to the world stage in an all-new spoken word poetry experience. Audiences are taken on a journey of personal loss and love, growth, mental health, community, friendship, and strength. These universal themes take center stage as original music scores the show and projections immerse audiences. Performing new unpublished pieces, poems from ‘home body’ and greatest hits from her iconic books ‘milk and honey’ and ‘the sun and her flowers’ - join Rupi on her World Tour as we reconnect with each other and most importantly, ourselves.

Rupi Kaur Bio

Rupi Kaur is a poet, artist, and performer. As a 21-year-old university student Rupi wrote, illustrated, and self-published her first poetry collection, ‘milk and honey’. Next came its artistic sibling, ‘the sun and her flowers’. These collections have sold over 8 million copies and have been translated into over 42 languages. Her most recent book, ‘home body’, debuted #1 on bestsellers lists across the world. In 2021, Rupi executive produced and starred in her debut film, ‘Rupi Kaur Live’, which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Rupi's work touches on love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity, and migration. She feels most at home when creating art or performing her poetry on stage.
