SPOKEN WORD FEATURE PERFORMANCE
A feature performance set of spoken word pieces by Patrick de Belen.
SPOKEN WORD WORKSHOPS
An interactive Spoken Word experience. Participants will explore the art of performance poetry through a combination of creative writing activities, performance games and free-writes – usually ending in a high-energy open mic. You might think it would be easier for a wordsmith to illustrate a mental picture of the magic that happens when a budding poet spits a piece for the first time, but it’s definitely one of those things you have to be there for. The power of your voice is a force unparalleled to any other weapon on this planet. Try it yourself.
