The cavernous halls of the CCCB are the perfect venue for this multilingual poetry slam. The often overlooked talents of Barcelona’s thriving poetry scene take to the stage to deliver their works with emotion, humour, anger and theatrical enthusiasm. The range of poems and styles is endless, touching on topics such as current political issues, societal problems, childhood and mental health stigmas. Regardless of the language, the passion of the speakers consumes the listeners.
This regular poetry slam aims to find a place for poetry in a society filled with emoticons, creating a real life, social network for poets and writers. It reminds us that words are still one of the clearest ways to express ourselves, and gives us a new perspective on those spoken.
Slammers meet once a month. Entry is free. More information here.
