If spoken word is the new rock ’n’ roll, then for everyone who’s ever been in love, fallen out of love or had their heart broken on St Valentine’s day, List Hot One Hundred performance poetry company, Poetry Circus, are back with Broken Hearts, a sumptuous evening of stunning spoken word cabaret featuring bestselling novelist, Rosie Garland, and special guest poets, Elizabeth McGeown, Elise Hadgraft & Catherine Wilson plus Poetry Circus regulars Matthew Macdonald, Gray Crosbie, Angie Strachan, Lloyd Robinson, Suky Goodfellow & Max Scratchmann, and, of course, a stellar supporting cast of stupendous emerging talent and Poetry Circus first-timers – David Macpherson, Rebecca Huxley, Stella Birrell and Norma Hart.
And that’s not all. We’ll have film and animation, songs from resident chanteuse Rachel Kelly and out-of-this-world performance from Andromada Mystic and Rach Leonard.
Even if you don’t give a flying f*ck about Valentine’s day, this is one celebration you don’t want to miss.
