People Powered Poetry

Tech and poetry come together for two nights of live improvised performances.

| Visit website

This is the world’s first AI-fuelled improvised poetry event, hosted by giffgaff to celebrate the art of spoken word at the iconic Moth Club in Hackney! 

People Powered Poetry will see live performances from celebrated artists who will improvise poetry on real-time trending topics with hilarious and thought-provoking results. The poets will go up against a poetry bot that has been created by giffgaff to capture the sentiment of the UK population on a range of topics, picking lines from people’s tweets and then turning those into fourteen line sonnets. Each sonnet is unique to that moment in time, creating a series of living, breathing poems.
 
Guests will have the chance to inspire the performances on stage using social media to tag topics they want to see transformed by the artists; The lineup over the two nights is sure to electrify, from musical talent such as beatbox Champion Bellatrix to spoken-word sensation Deanna Rodgers. Celebrated spoken-word poets including Hussain Manawer (who recently sold out the Jazz Cafe) and Bridget Minamore (the original Youth London Poet Laureate). The event is hosted by award-winning comic and TV Personality Jayde Adams.


People Powered Poetry will be at moth Club in Hackney on 25 & 26 July. Doors open from 6.30 pm. The event is free but book tickets here.
