Big Word of Mouth is storytelling at its best, with no notes, no props and nothing to hide behind. But someone is not telling the truth and it’s up to the audience to find out which Big Mouth has their ‘pants on fire’. A heartwarming and fun story slam.
Presents: The Secret City

Write Acts presents original and classical readings by a panel of readers; spoken word including poetry, beat poetry, prose and performance writing inspired by the event theme The Sound of Light.
A 30min show repeated each hour.
Spoken word artist Nicole McKenzie explores the sound of light through performance poetry. Is grief blaring ambulance lights or a barely there dull blue globe? Is love fairy lights jumping or the only street light in a deserted town?
Nicole uses light as a tool, a metaphor, an explanation.
