BIRMINGHAM: Spoken Word Allstars

Saturday, November 20th, 8pm-10.30pm
MAC Centre,

Poet in the City and Apples & Snakes have taken five poets and one globally-acclaimed musician, and given them free rein to create a spectacular evening of wall-to-wall words with an unflagging backbeat.

The All Star cast...
Kate Tempest - Hellfiery powerhouse of socio-poetry
El Crisis - combines a hypnotic mixture of rap, spoken word, song and chant.
OneNess - Spoken-word Soulsista from Grenada
Kat Francois - Slamtastic, superphysical storyteller
Ventriloquist - Wordsmith wizard from the West
Jason Yarde - the King of improv Sax.

The All Stars national tour launched at Latitude Festival and proceeds hence forth across the country. Catch this great poetry tour at the recently re-opened MAC Centre this autumn.
