Roundhouse presents: An Evening of Spoken Word
Join us at PamBan for a taster of some of the Roundhouse's incredible artists, who will be showcasing extracts from their Last Word shows.
James Alexander is a comedian. Of sorts. Someone told him in order to get better he should be himself more on stage. James is just not sure whether he has actually ever been ‘himself’.
Georgie Jones is a performance poet and storyteller originally from a small town in the Midlands now living in North London. Her performance has been described as ‘delightfully dry’ which, for someone who sports a sweaty palm more often than not, she will take as a compliment.
From bingo halls and council estates to hand-built homes in the Calais Jungle, Matt Abbott presents a personal and political spoken word show exploring the chaos behind Brexit. Humorous, harrowing, celebratory and confrontational; a vital poetic journey for our times. Matt recently shared a stage with Jeremy Corbyn, Paul Weller, Sara Pascoe, Ken Loach and Sleaford Mods and is rapidly establishing himself as a leading political poet.
Want more? Head over to the Roundhouse for their Last Word festival; 17 days of different perspectives and stories will take over our building and raise its big circular roof.
