Performance event with open mic and special guests: Monday 24th February 7.30pm @3MT
Stirred Poetry is a feminist focused poetry event that has been supporting women and everyone for three years.
Feel free to interpret the theme however you want, get angry, get inspired, get passionate. From Riot grrrl to Pussy Riot in ten words please…
I usually write the things I perform and perform the things I write, either on my own or with other people (on the stage that is, there’s usually at least one person in the audience). These things include poetry, theatre, and experimental performance. I like working with musicians too, mostly in a hip-hop or jazz sort of vein. I’ve also performed things other people have written and written things other people have performed, or that no one has performed but hopefully some people have read. These things include poetry, plays, short stories, short films and the occasional article.
Open mic is open to everyone five mins or less. We like it if men and anyone else who fancies it does a poem by a female poet they like/admire.
Doors at 7.30. £2/1 if you are skint :)
