Poets address the state of the nation and imagine a better tomorrow.
The planet is spinning off its axis. Humankind is at a tipping point. We are heading towards disaster. Divided, we will fall.
A medley of compelling spoken word performances, Rallying Cry offers the stage to some of the country’s most outspoken artists to address the state of the nation and imagine a better tomorrow.
Joelle Taylor, Chiedu Oraka, Zena Edwards and Francesca Beard perform specially commissioned work on the theme of protest. Interrogating the body as political placard, class and the desperate and challenging need for unity in this time of division, Rallying Cry is a call to action.
