Poet in the City Producers present: Speak Your Truth: Subculture and the Mainstream

Spoken word poetry, born from the spirit of the blues and hip-hop, was once seen as non-conforming and illegitimate; unworthy of the title of ‘poetry’ at all.

In the music world, the same was once thought of hip-hop itself, jazz and many other now popular and established genres.

How are subcultures reflected in mainstream music and poetry? What happens when subculture starts to become part of the mainstream? Where do we draw the line between the two? Where do we draw the line between poetry and lyrics?

In an evening of unconventional, extraordinary live poetry, music and discussion presented by Poet in the City Producers, they will be exploring the answers to all of these questions and more.
