Hot-foot from Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Bristol’s Pete Bearder will be sharing perspectives on the radical history of performance poetry, based on his recent performance work. His ground-breaking new book Stage Invasion: Poetry & the Spoken Word Renaissance:

‘Explores the unwritten history, science and skill of spoken word and answers some strangely under-explored questions: What is the history of performance poetry in the UK? How does emotional contagion happen in live literature? What has spoken word got to do with hypnotism and ecstatic states? This crucial and highly accessible book explores a thriving ecology of artistry, and how it can serve us for cultural, social and political renewal’.
