Talia Randall presents What Words Are Ours?a thigh-slapping, tear-jerking poetry-cabaret show.
Created and hosted by the “sublime” and “distinctive” Talia Randall, this sell-out, text-based variety show features a kaleidoscope of performances, from drag artists, BSL poets, rising stars of the spoken word scene to masters of puns and political satire.
BSL interpreted and Captioned.
RAYMOND ANTROBUS fresh from winning the Ted Hughes Poetry Award, Raymond Antrobus will be reading from his new book The Perseverance, A Sunday Times and The Guardian Poetry Book of the year. “The Perseverance is a book of loss, contested language and praise, where elegies for the poet’s father sit alongside meditations on the d/Deaf experience”. Penned in the Margins
ZOË MCWHINNY will be performing her incredible Visual Vernacular and BSL poetry. Having grown up immersed in the Deaf community Zoë is nonchalant about, and unashamed of her Deaf identity and sign languages. Zoë’s BSL and Visual Vernacular will be accompanied by a voice artist and BSL interpreter.

AMANI SAEED’s work explores the crisis cultivated by living between sometimes (but not always) contradictory cultures, treading the line between masjid and mini skirt. Amani will be performing her electric, strident and brave poems at the show.
THE PHOENIX is a Lava-tongued fierce-mover will be spitting fiery raps and breakneck moves. High energy, gorgeous & charming
