Poet and writer Dean Atta and illustrator Ben Connors come together for an evening of charged spoken word and live art.

Mixing spoken word performance from Dean’s critically acclaimed debut poetry collection, I Am Nobody’s Nigger together with brand new work alongside live illustrations that lift the words from the page and animate the stage – this is not poetry as you know it.

Hosted by Deanna Rodger plus additional performances from Antosh Wojcik (Roundhouse Poetry Slam winner), Sarah Perry and Sophie Fenella (Roundhouse Poetry Collective).

One of the UK’s finest poets

Time Out

Dean’s poetry is as honest as truth itself. He follows no trend; he seeks no favours … Beyond black, beyond white, beyond straight, beyond gay, so I say. You will be uplifted.

Benjamin Zephaniah
