the foundations of oppression can't be plucked up without the anger of a multitude

Rap vs Poetry @ Bedroom Bar, Shoreditch, Friday 17th August 2012

As part of a 1extra documentary, Hammer & Tongue and Fat Gold Chain have collaborated to produce an event we are calling:

Rap vs Poetry

@Bedroom Bar, 68 Rivington Street, Shoreditch EC2A 3AY

Doors 8pm. Tickets only £4 in advance if you get them online here.

The concept is that a team of poets will face off against a team of rappers. Everyone will be expected to show something of their own artform, to try out the other art form and to write something on the night or to freestyle something that cusses off the other side.

Mediating all this will be Dizraeli, MC with The Small Gods and a 2 time winner of UK Poetry Slam Contests.

We hope that it will give a chance for people to see where the two scenes are at right now by holding them up to direct comparison and think about how similar / different / better / worse they are. Perhaps it might even introduce people to a genre or genres they don’t know much about.

Poets:

1. Angry Sam (me)

2. curious – sharp tongued, funny, intelligent, political MC-turned-poet

3. Kat Francois – amazing performer, poet, playwright and former world slam poetry champion.

4. Keith Jarrett – very clever, politically sharp poet also with a history of winning big slam titles.

5. Stephanie Dogfoot – distinctive young poet with a trademark method of autobiographical poems that subtly tell universal stories.

MCs (who will have to introduce themselves)
