“SpokenWord is down to earth, it has no pretensions – its head is too crammed with shooting stars. It moves to a beatnik rhythm – everyone is free to express themselves. Chacun a son mot à dire. … It was here before you knew you needed it. It will be here when you come back. It’s performance poetry, story-telling, stand-up, monologue, a song. It’s cabaret. Comedy. 5 minute plays. Sometimes it’s dance. Or boxing. Mostly it’s an original text or a classic read well. Lire vivant. It’s a space to do anything with words or performance. There’s only one rule – make the words come alive.”
