Apples and Snakes Presents: Artificial Ineloquence: Dan Simpson

Stand-up poet Dan Simpson (Glastonbury Festival, Canterbury Laureate) focuses his high-speed fuzzy logic on the screens and machines that rule over our lives. As the robots rise and deep learning AIs threaten to take over the world, can humanity survive in a world of cutting-edge technology? An electric show of computer generated jokes, emoji poetry and selfie stick performance from BBC Fringe Slam finalist Dan Simpson.

Winner: Wandsworth Fringe Grand Prix

“the perfect antidote to the perpetual screen-burn of our internet-obsessed age” – The Scotsman
“a talented wordsmith – this is poetry for the selfie generation.” – West End Wilma
“wordplay alchemy” – Fringe Review

Open Mic
(All welcome)

A 30 minute sharing of words and ideas- we will see where it takes us. 10 spaces available- a partnership with Open Mouth!

All are welcome to our totally acoustic music and poetry night! Join us each month when local (and not so local) songwriters and poets share their lyrical loves. Be experimental! Be brave! Bring something of your own to perform, or something by anyone else you happen to like. If you don’t feel like opening your mouth lend us your ears! Join our community for one night only, drop in from time to time, or come back every month.

Open Mouth poetry and music group meet every second Thursday at the Plough Arts Centre.
