LONDON: Apples & Snakes in Soho

Poetry and spoken word for the 21st Century
Wednesday, 28th May, 8pm, £8, £6 concessions.

Soho Theatre,
21 Dean Street,

A decade is a long time in performance poetry. Come and see one performer who's going from strength to strength after ten years in the business, another who's spent the last ten years carving a substantial niche for himself, and one talented newcomer with a promising poetic future in front of him. Add an international artist who's busy redefining the whole concept of spoken word, and we've got a crash course in the nation's favourite underground artform.


Patience Agbabi – tattooed poetry ambassador who has strutted her stuff everywhere from Eton College to Namibia; now promoting her new collection Bloodshot Monochrome.

Luke Wright - Edinburgh Fringe institution, star of the hit theatre show Poet & Man, and the creative force behind Latitude Festival's stand-up poetry arena.

Keith Jarrett - not the famous jazz muso, but a hotly-tipped and charismatic new face on London's poetry stages.

Rosie Dennis - well-respected Sydney voice-artist, known for blurring the lines between text and movement; tonight airing her Love Song Dedication piece.
