Mixtape: poetry and Music

  • Birmingham Rep Centenary Square Birmingham, England, B1 United Kingdom (map)

Join dub poetry stars Nick Makoha and Roger Robinson for Mixtape – a unique show combining poetry and music.

Hear poems about music, poems about love, poems of protest and of exile, monologues and duet poems… all tied together through an unforgettable soundtrack of songs, from Afrobeats to hip-hop, reggae and soul.

Weaving music and writing together, with the friendship between the performers at its heart, it's a show about the struggle for your identity, both personal and political.

The event will also showcase local poets Casey Bailey and Jasmine Gardosi.
