StAnza International Poetry Festival
 

Events by category: StAnza 2014

Performances/Plays

Performances/PlaysStAnza is dedicated to drawing people in to poetry. One of the many ways we do this is through performances presenting poetry in different guises: combined with or set to music, in combination with other art forms, as contemporary song, as epic storytelling, while our Poetry Cabaret events present poets whose work takes in the ever-popular performance poetry form. With so many laugh-out-loud poets around, how could we resist this series of events?
