Rainbow Fish Speak Easy: The Loveliest Spoken Word Poetry Night (online via Yeovil)

Laugh, cry, share a poem, and 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 jaw aching genius Chris White
  • The Word/Play group will perform
  • The Spork-Up Emerging South West Artists will share a poem
  • 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, if you like, and adorn yourself with a Rainbow Fish theme, If you are bored and want an excuse to dress up… 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.
