Prowl Presents: Sister | Sizter

Prowl House presents
SISTER|SIZTER

A night of spoken word to celebrate sisterhood and women’s voices
from the iconic women leading the UK poetry scene.

Spoken word is a feminist force. There are more women at the top of the UK spoken word scene than there are of any other gender.

A woman’s voice is revolution. It’s the sound of space being claimed back, finally uninterrupted. It’s the sound of wit, dignity and empathy forging change. Women’s voices together are a cauldron. We share our stories to show our differences and in doing so find all the ways we reflect one another, instead.

So for Friday 13th we’re cooking a potent brew with a diverse mix of 2017’s poetry icons.

Salena Godden, one of Britain foremost poets. Writer of Shade, which was published in The Good Immigrant, author of Springfield Road and her political comedy poetry and essays have become a favourite of BBC3 and 4. She was shortlisted for the major Ted Hughes Award 2017 for her poetry album LiveWIRE. “She is everything the Daily Mail is terrified of” – Kerrang Magazine.

Deanna Rodger, star of Women Who Spit (BBC iPlayer), one of ELLE’s ’30 inspirational women under 30’, and Cosmopolitan’s ‘No. 1 trailblazing woman’. She co-curates two leading spoken word events Chill Pill and Come Rhyme With Me. Her debut collection I Did It Too is out now with Burning Eye Books.

Sabrina Mahfouz, winner of Sky Arts Academy Poetry Award, she is the playwright behind Off-Side, With A Little Bit of Luck, Battleface, the love I feel is red and Chef (which won the Fringe First Award). She edited the first ever anthology of British Muslim Women, The Things I Would Tell You, which was released this year.

Lisa Luxx, shortlisted for Peace Poetry Prize, Saboteur Awards Best Spoken Word Performer, and named one of the top 4 queer poets to look out for by Diva. Her work features on BBC Radio 4 and her philosophy and poems have been published by the likes of Tate Britain, i-D, The International Times, The Sunday Times. In 2017 she released poetry and essay collection The 4th Brain.

Prowl House is a progressive arts company that published the international cult zine, Prowl. “Prowl is rewriting media for the Aquarian age” – Guru Jagat.
