Join Pete 'the Temp' Bearder and Out-Spoken Press for an evening celebrating the release of Stage Invasion: Poetry & the Spoken Word Renaissance.
A groundbreaking new book which explores the unwritten history, science and skill of spoken word and answers some strangely under-explored questions: What is the history of performance poetry in the UK? How does emotional contagion happen in live literature? What has spoken word got to do with hypnotism and ecstatic states? This crucial and highly accessible book explores a thriving ecology of artistry, and how it can serve us for cultural, social and political renewal.
Hosted by Joelle Taylor, the reading will be followed by a Q&A with poet and editor Anthony Anaxagorou and book signing.
Ticket price includes a copy of Stage Invasion.
