We’re celebrating World Sleep Day at SproutSpoken – join us for an evening of sleeptalking!
Sign up to the open-mic and share your words... whether it’s your first time or a regular – there is bags of support and encouragement! If you're taking part, tickets are free - just book one below and include a few details about you when you checkout.
SproutSpoken is just as much about our audiences... you don't need to take part to enjoy an evening out with a difference with SproutSpoken. Come along and soak up the exciting range of local people from the community 'having a go' as well as emerging performers and headline acts.
At our Sleeptalking! event, as well as the open-mic, there will be feature spots from local artists and we're delighted to annouce a headline set from Bristol-based performer, Malaika Kegode.
Writer, performer and producer, Malaika Kegode has appeared on stages at a number of festivals and literary events including WOMAD and Edinburgh Book Festival. She has published two poetry collections with Burning Eye Books, and the playtext of her debut theatre show Outlier is published by Salamander Street. An autobiographical gig-theatre show created with prog-rock band Jakabol, Outlier was the first piece of new writing to appear on Bristol Old Vic’s main stage in 2021. In addition to her own writing, Malaika is a poetry mentor and workshop leader. She is the founder and lead producer of Milk Poetry, an organisation that produces innovative spoken word events in a supportive environment. Outside of poetry, she is passionate about writing on the themes of cinema, culture and race.
Malaika also studies film and has worked as a programme selector for Encounters Film Festival and Tallinn Black Nights. Her debut short poetry-film Wide as the Sea, an exploration of millennial Queer culture, was made over the 2021 lockdown on a £10 budget. It has been shown at various online events, including Queer Vision’s Sofa Club. She is excited to continue exploring genre, form and the power of the written word made visual.
As usual, Sprout Health Foods will be providing a great range of hot food and snacks, as well as alcoholic/soft drinks.
Tickets are only £5 for audience members and they're free if you’re taking part in the open-mic or if you come in your pyjamas!
