A vibrant, poetic protest merging music, spoken word and language, Untapped Nation is a celebration of multicultural identity, the intersection of culture and community spirit.

Brought to you by the participants of Wax Lyrical, our spoken word project, the show will explore the power of art and performance as a tool in the face of cultural tension.

Please note, this is a promenade performance. If you have access needs, please contact us in advance via access@roundhouse.org.uk or 0300 6789 222.

About Wax Lyrical
Over six weeks, a group of young emerging artists aged 16-25 have been working with professional artists Kat Francois and Arjunan Manuelpillai to create a powerful night of spoken word exploring identity, bilingualism and the concept of home.

Where I’m from, hardly anyone is exposed to the arts. There’s a load of talent but no guidance. Roundhouse changed my life.
