C. Bravo Productions exists to celebrate the arts of Poetry, Spoken Word and Storytelling in New York City and encourage up-and-coming artists to perform in a venue where they may freely express and share of themselves in an open forum.
Carmen Bravo first learned about Spoken Word and Poetry in 2010. She was deeply touched when she heard artists speaking their craft. From that initial exposure, she was determined to become a champion of the arts in the areas of poetry, storytelling and spoken word. Carmen set her mind towards learning the business and thus began her exploration. After much Internet research and speaking to others in the field, she set her sails in the direction of production. She teamed up with a small number of seasoned artists. Carmen learned much about the business and ultimately broke out on her own with her small crew in tow.
Through some very tough trials, her band of artists has stuck together. In 2013, she founded C. Bravo Productions, LLC, and has produced many shows - 13 of which occurred at the legendary Nuyorican Poet’s Café. Now, with solid experience, hard work and determination she is well on her way to building a successful business. Carmen has overcome many of the pitfalls that can destroy a person’s dreams. She knows the hard work never ends. The dream continues to produce sweet fruit and a growing number of artists.
Prior to the founding of C. Bravo Productions, LLC, Carmen was a real estate agent in New Jersey.
