How far can you push the boundaries of performance? See what happens when some of the most exciting spoken word poets leave their comfort zones.
Lit Fuse, developed jointly by mac birmingham and Apples and Snakes, is a series of events showcasing new work devised by UK poets in collaboration with top directors and producers. Don’t miss this opportunity to be there at the start of something big – help us light the fuse!
The November 2013 edition will premiere four brand new long pieces written and performed by four exciting Birmingham-based poets:
- Elisabeth Charis, writer, allotment neglector, boater, thinker, watcher of people, obsessive noter.
- Ben Norris, an actor, writer, and sadness fighter; a student, brother, and strong cheese lover
- Roy Mcfarlane, just walking the earth, delivering words, wherever he sees it and however he feels it.
- Lily Blacksell: a word sayer and saxophone player, Lily studies English with Creative Writing. GSOH essential.
They will be working with director Polly Tisdall, who creates work which explores the relationship between spoken word, storytelling and theatre.
