We celebrate 35 years of Apples and Snakes with an explosive mix of 4 ten-minute tasters of some of the best spoken word shows out in full-length glory in 2017.
Apples and Snakes is England’s leading organisation for performance poetry and spoken word, with a national reputation for producing exciting, engaging and transformative work in performance and participation.
Tonight’s trailers are as follows:
The Cult of Kenzo by Paula Varjack
Paula finds herself outside a shopping center queuing for a limited edition clothing collection. The next 5 hours mark the strangest shopping experience she has ever had, as she sees into a world of those willing to spend hours and even days waiting for the chance to buy. How do brands create desire within us to need and want to buy? What fuels this relationship? How do we as consumers fuel it further?
To Helen Back by Helen Seymour
Analysing sickness, health and what it really means to recover, Helen Seymour admits you into a surreal hospital to create a funny, unique and powerful theatrical experience.
Shall We Take This Outside? by Adam Kammerling
