Level UP: Talking Doorsteps Special

Level UP: Talking Doorsteps Special | Wednesday 7th June 2016 | Birmingham Repertory Theatre | 7 til 9pm | £3/£5

BeatfreeksApples and Snakes and Birmingham Repertory Theatre are joining with another magnetic force... An absolute exciting one off with Roundhouse!

Talking Doorsteps is a spoken word exchange project that explores the idea of “Home” by connecting young poets and filmmakers from across the globe and sharing their work digitally with audiences worldwide. In the first 6 months of the project, emerging British artists nurtured by the Roundhouse lead workshops and share experiences with youth arts organisations around the world. Workshop participants then travel to the UK to take part in further collaborative work and perform on the British spoken word scene. 2017 has seen us work with 80 artists aged 16-25 from Trinidad, Abu Dhabi, Honduras and the UK.

We are delighted to be bringing 6 of these incredible international poets to Birmingham to collaborate with 6 up-and-coming Brum poets on a one-off special edition of Level Up, inspired by stories from around the world.

Apples & Snakes, Beatfreeks & Birmingham Repertory Theatre presents an explosive night of spoken word in performance, featuring some of the country’s very best poets alongside local rising stars.

"One of the best poetry nights in the UK" - Sabrina Mahfouz, Level UP Season Four
