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.
In their debut show Milk Teeth, Spare The Poets dig memories from playground sandpits, prise them from sticky night club floors, and put them under a microscope, asking: When did we stop playing? Will these acne scars ever fade? And whatever happened to our milk teeth?
Blood is thicker than water, or so they say. In this new collection Family, the Roundhouse Poetry Collective, share their stories of mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers, exploring what makes us family: the family we’re born into and the family we choose.
The Roundhouse Poetry Collective are a group of talented young poets currently working with Roundhouse mentors on a year-long development programme.
Spare the Poets hatched during the Roundhouse Poetry Collective 2014/15. Now, having flown the nest, they’re making waves in the London poetry scene.
The show takes place in the Sackler Space at The Roundhouse. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
