Celebrate the best of spoken word at The RoundhouseFeaturing the best of poetry, storytelling and live performance, The Last Word Festival returns to The Roundhouse (one of the world's most incredible live performance venues) for another year. The festival showcases the best talent in spoken word, from the genre's trailblazers to rising stars and everything in between. Get ready to be amused, moved and lexically delighted by the best wordsmiths around.
Mashing up the hype of grime with the craft of spoken word, grime-born poet Debris Stevenson lyrically reinterprets Dizzee Rascal’s genre defining album Boy In Da Corner, exploring what lyrically defines grime, as part of a year long project named Poet In Da Corner.
Collaborating with producer Rapsz Katai (who's produced for the likes of JME and Skepta), Debris will perform with Jammz, TrueMendous, Youth Oracle, Eklipse and more.
Dirtee Verse will also feature DJ sets, grime inspired poems from Kayo Chingonyi, Charlie Dark and Raphael Blake, a Clash Money battle between Nottingham based Mouthy Poets and MCs and more.
The show takes place in the Sackler Space at The Roundhouse. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
