Blah’s Big Weekend: Salena Godden & John Berkavitch
A packed weekend showcasing the UK's best spoken word performers - presented by Bristol Old Vic, Tangent Books and Anna Freeman
Featuring some of the biggest names in spoken word, Blah’s Big Weekend returns this June for three days jam-packed with alliteration, assonance, metaphor and rhyme at its finest
Blahblahblah is excited to be able to support two established artists in developing brand new shows this year. We’re offering a preview of both shows for one price – a double bill with an interval.
SALENA GODDEN: MRS DEATH MISSES DEATH
Salena Godden returns to our podium with her new experimental piece, Mrs Death Misses Death, a rousing celebration about appreciating life and the short time that we have to live it; this live performance is a collaboration of a new novel and album, with fiction and poetry by Peter Coyte.
JOHN BERKAVITCH: POKEMAN G.O.A.T.
John Berkavitch was never a gamer. He was a troll in gaming chatrooms. But somehow, after becoming hooked on Pokemon Go, he has risen to the top 1% of players in the world. In this newly developed spoken word performance, John explores reality gaming and his one-man quest to be the very best.
