Description

The north's most powerful female voices are coming together for a night of two acclaimed spoken word shows with an opportunity to open mic.
This is a fringe event for Sheffield's famous Off The Shelf festival.

Rose Condo:
Canadian writer, performer and multiple slam winning spoken word poet will be hosting our open mic.
Rose has written and toured two solo shows – The Geography of Me & How To Starve An Artist (Runner Up Best UK Spoken Word Show – Saboteur Awards 2017). Her slam wins include Manchester’s Word War Slam Championship, SLAMalgamate in Newcastle, the Axis Slam in Crewe and the Say Owt Slam in Edinburgh. Rose has competed at the Hammer & Tongue National Slam at London’s Royal Albert Hall (2016 & 2017). Longlisted for the inaugural Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowship, Rose has featured at festivals and events across the UK, including Lindisfarne Festival, the Ilkley Literature Festival Fringe, the Huddersfield Literature Festival, performances for Amnesty International, and supporting Shane Koyczan (presented by Apples & Snakes and Say Owt – York) and Hollie McNish (presented by Evidently – Salford). Rose programmes and hosts Queenie’s Coffee House Nights at the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield, and runs creative writing workshops for young people and adults. www.rosecondo.net


Genevieve Carver & The Unsung:
You’ve heard of Kurt Cobain. You’ve heard of Jim Morrison. But have you heard of Scott Johnson, or Lina Prokofiev? The Unsung is a raucous funeral party for the dead musicians you've never heard of. A journey in spoken word and music from Sheffield poet Genevieve Carver and her live band Sarah Sharp, Tim Knowles and Brian Bestall, The Unsung takes you on a whirlwind tour around the world exploring how music has shattered the lives of those who’ve loved it most.

Winner of Best Spoken Show at The Buxton Fringe

Lisa Luxx & The 4th Brain:
Lisa Luxx’s debut spoken word show is a musical and poetic journey that searches for connection in the modern day.
Exploring tech addiction, online insecurities, real-life community and the role of the web in the new landscape of politics and spirituality.
Written from the perspective of someone who had their first mobile phone at the age of 10 and spent much of her twenties in the wild, rejecting technology all together.

This is a story of now and tomorrow.
A story of fear and hope.
A story of feminine [r]evolution.

Accompanied by the music of multi-instrumentalist Rico. The show was launched at London’s Ace Hotel to a sell-out audience, and has continued to sell out venues across the UK.

“Lisa Luxx is phenomenal, a poet of guts and heart, she is alive with fire and truth. Her poetry always makes me wish people would wake up, for it is a fact listening to her I’m reminded how much we’ve all been sleeping. These are the songs we sing when we are brave, when we have our eyes open, this work will be remembered long after we are all gone.” - Salena Godden

"Blazing bright, razor-sharp, Lisa Luxx dazzles with wild wit and fierce passion." - Jake Arnott

“In a world full of safe, mortage-paying lifestyles it came as a relief and a thrill to hear Lisa Luxx’s vision of the present and the future.”
- Stephanie Theobald, The Guardian
