Visceral poetry from Joelle Taylor

Joelle Taylor is a pioneer of the British spoken word scene. Interweaving activism with a surreal and intricate artistry, she creates poetry which is raw and vulnerable yet compassionate and full of hope. Reminding us that the political is unceasingly personal, her work unpicks colonisation and terrorism, invasion and ownership, and finds words from and for the collective silences which colour many women’s experience in a patriarchal world. Don’t miss what promises to be an extraordinary and mesmerising performance.

Content warning: this event may contain discussion of sexual assault.
