You can’t ignore the jaw,
come and explore the jaw -
don’t want to hear no can’ts or won’ts or shan’ts.
Talk your way through the door -
it’s what your jawbone’s for:
Jawdance Jawdance Jawdance – JAAAWDAAANCE!
Featuring: Eleanor Hough, Kyrill Potapov, Victoria-Anne Bulley and your compere for the evening, Justin Coe.
Yes - poetry; a stage; a microphone; you. Put it all together and you’ve got Jawdance, the spoken-word show that’s hipper than a thousand Shoreditch hipsters wearing hipsters. And let’s not neglect to mention the special guests, the poetry films, the competitions and the genial host. As much brilliance, in fact, as two and a half hours can possibly contain.
And, since this is poetry, we’ll end with a metaphor: the early bird gets the worm. (Worm = open-mic slot; early bird = poet, arriving before the show starts.) I think we understand each other.
Check out the JAWDANCE facebook page - here you will find photos, footage and films from the shows.
