CARDIFF: Spoken Word All Stars

Thursday, March 31st, 2011
Cardiff Pierhead

Poetry is blasting its way into the hearts and minds of a new generation with high energy and rhythmic poetry sketching out a new literary landscape for the 21st century. Spoken Word All Stars presents an all-star cast of some of the most exciting poets of the day, performing an original live show in partnership with the globally acclaimed sax player Jason Yarde.

Taking five poets and one musician, the free show at Cardiff's Pierhead building on 31st March presents a stellar line-up of international award winners and critically acclaimed performers, including Kat Francois, OneNess, El Crisis, Chris Redmond, and special guest artist Peter Finch, a legendary performer whose poetic words can be seen set in concrete outside the new Central Library.

Spoken Word All Stars’ journey began at Latitude Festival 2010, and is featured on TV as a documentary by Sky Arts. Their spectacular live show weaves comedy, tragedy, romance and philosophy; spoken word interwoven with live and improvised loops, beats and melodies.

The show is free and is produced by charity Poet in the City, with support from Apples & Snakes and Arts Council England. With the further endorsement of Academi, the Literature Promotion Agency for Wales, this is an event that offers a truly unique experience, and early booking is advised, either by emailing or ringing 07908 367488.
