Your poetry

Open Collab is going live and in-person again! 

Join us, multi-instrumentalist live-looping duo Charlie + Jake, for an immersive afternoon of poetry, music and more: Open Collab. We will be creating musical universes around poetry sent in from across Bristol, and from all over the world, and featuring special guest Kathryn O’Driscoll, current UK Slam Champion. Joining us on stage will be movement artist and dancer Simon Abel, adding another layer of improvisation and collaboration into the mix. From ambient soundscapes to soulful grooves and vocals, we’ll be using every instrument and sound under the sun to transport you into the worlds of the poems for a one-of-a-kind show.
