Dive verse-first into the siren’s call of slam, bush and performance poetry, debates, storytelling, comedy and the tongue twister that is the strange beast: Word. Bush bards take on the spoken word cats, folk tries to take down hip hop one deck at a time, new voices try to make the sky fall, or make you lose your breath in laughter. Immerse yourself in the Wordfood circus of the word, where performance poets and special guests stretch the form daily to breaking point. Nonsensical, whimsical, argumentative and poetical, you’ll love poetry, laughter, forum, debate and comedy from those with minds cracked to let in the light.
