Genre-defying spoken word theatre
If you think spoken word isn’t your thing, you’ve never heard Kate Tempest take the mic. She’s a young British poet with awe-inspiring MC skills that have already sold her native London audience. Her solo play, Brand New Ancients, is full of soul. It rides a fine line between poetry, theatre, and hip-hop, but most importantly, it’s thematically poignant and resonates long after the show’s over. Skeptics take note—this is a special performance not to be missed. Best available reserved seating allocated by the venue on arrival.
"Just as in her narrative, the ordinary is lifted into the extraordinary; score, writing, band and voice come together to create a package that never makes you question why you aren't just reading or listening to this."
