Spoken Word Antics, 9th May, Sheffield

On Tuesday 9th May, Spoken Word Antics, an avant-garde adventure, takes place at 8.30pm, upstairs at the Red Deer on Pitt St, off Mappin St, Sheffield (map: ). £1 donations.

This month Spoken Word Antics celebrates the avant-garde and discovers it's not just for 'funny continentals'. Live performances by writers whose work has a bearing on the avant-garde will be interspersed with archive recordings of avant-garde practitioners such as Maiakovskii, Schwitters, Dada, and Ginsberg. From serious to absurd, minimalist to prophetic, expect a lively and provocative evening.

There will be readings from Liverpool's Scott Thurston, Bradford's Bruce Barnes, and performance art from Sheffield's Roland Miller. Also appearing will be Matt Black, Andy Hirst, Chris Brownsword, Jonathan Baxter, and Tom Stafford with his latest 'historical vignette about moments of revolution'.

Please note, this will not be an open mic event.
