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 the first public performance of material that will form part of his new show, Guinness World Record holding beatboxer Testament fuses together spoken word, loop station theatrics, poetry and rap and to tell a powerful new story of contemporary Britain.
Two people head out on a booze-fuelled bender, and are forced to face up to their own prejudices, as Testament tackles issues of race, gender and understanding people who don’t share our point of view.
The show takes place in the Dorfman Hub at The Roundhouse. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
