Rainbow Fish Speak Easy


Laugh, cry, share a poem feel better about the world and the people in it.

As ever the broken and the beautiful and all their friends are invited.

  • Liv Torc will host with the power to mute you all at will!
  • A headline spot from the outlandishly wonderful Jasmine Gardosi, who will be joining us from Birmingham
  • The Rainbow Fish workshop group will perform
  • There will be an open mic with spots available for anyone with an original poem to share. (Book with Liv early to get on the bill.)
  • We will be making an audience poem live on the night
  • Bring your own shakers, so we can create a ‘we are all shaking together’ atmosphere

The show comes out of Take Art's performance poetry on prescription Word/Play project, which helps adults with mental health or learning challenges find new ways to talk about their lives.
