Celebrate the best of spoken word at The Roundhouse
Featuring 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. Following on from the critically acclaimed Shame, Berkavitch and company return to The Last Word festival with a brand new work of spoken-word-dance theatre. Written and performed by poet John Berkavitch and combining poetry, dance and live illustration Wrong is a story of fatherhood. Berkavitch is joined on stage by a group of dancers and illustrators, who physically manipulate, interrogate, annotate and enable him to tell a story about having, becoming and being a dad. The show takes place in the Sackler Space at The Roundhouse. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
“A charming, original and inventive response to impending parenthood.”
