Spoken Word at Contact

Spoken Word at Contact

Contact theatre has got words a plenty this season, from cutting edge spoken word and poetry, to laugh out loud comedy and much more!

Using poetry, stand up comedy and monologue, Jackie Hagan shows the wonky, rock-hard, human reality of being poor right now in Jumble Soul.

Cheryl Martin returns to Contact as part of Black Gold Arts Festival's celebration of Black performance that aims to change the face of theatre.

Keisha Thompson explores cultural displacement, religious confusion, political paranoia, misplaced masculinity and more in the autobiographical, Man On The Moon.

As always, there's your chance to get involved. Take the floor at Rhythm and Words, join Young Identity on stage at One Mic Stand or come along to one of our regular workshops.
