Spoken Word & Visuals


Spoken words and salacious pictures (180 min)

This programme will explore the unique tension that exists between the moving image and spoken word poetry.

A number of writers and poets will have the opportunity to read or recite their writings to an audience, with a live VJ (visual jockey) accompanying the words with images on a big screen behind the speakers. There will be an “open mic” segment, for writers and performers and poets of all types, as well as a few prepared performances. The event will end with an improvised piece of music by Jaco van der Merwe, based on the poems of the readers. If you’d like to know more, or book a section on the mic, contact jaco@openwindow.co.za.
