Brighton’s quarterly spoken word showcase
Featuring top UK artists alongside local musical and spoken word talent, each Trope has a theme. This month: Happiness. What is it? Can we truly have it? How can we have it? Big questions for a big night!
Spoken word from: Francesca Beard
Francesca is a London-based poet who has been called ‘the Queen of British performance poetry’ (London Metro) and ‘spine-tingling’ (The Independent) plus many other (less flattering) things. She has performed her poetry all over the world, from a shopping mall in Bangkok to a prison in Colombia, to New York’s Nuyorican Café to Zimbabwe’s National Library.
Music from: Amber Burgoyne
A Jazz/Soul singer-songwriter combining smooth acoustic guitar and a voice “that melts your heart” with a sound heavily inspired by some of the great female voices. Amber’s Debut Single ‘I Don’t Need Your Love’ was released in May 2019.
Poet in residence: Connor Byrne
Connor is a poet from Brighton, whose self-published pamphlets explore ideas of gender and relationships. They have performed at festivals, nationally and internationally, competed in slams and now help run poetry nights in Brighton whilst working on their first full length show and collection.
