Bringing the best local, national and international spoken word artists to Southampton; from stand-up poets to live literature to spoken word theatre.
This month 451 City presents a Make it SO Special, featuring a headline set from poet, drummer and sound artist, Antosh Wojcik. Antosh destabilises the lines between reality and fantasy in an attempt to expose raw truths. Conversationally surreal and with Lynchian intent, he writes from the warped boredom of the suburb and the worry of his family. His debut solo performance piece toured the UK and internationally throughout 2019, combining drumming and spoken word to explore vascular dementia.
Plus we’ll have DIY Southampton spoken word featuring Kristianne Drake, SM Ripper, Chloe Brehault, and Scarlett Rien.
And a feature set from Alena Abiogun, performing poems that address the issue of knife crime from the viewpoint of someone with personal experience of the consequences.
Sign up at Box Office on the night from 7pm. Spaces limited.
