Power. Who has it, who wants it, who tries to take it from you? The poets know. What Are They Whispering? is a poetry show to nudge you or urge you to weigh up the balance of power in your own life. The dynamic trio of poets whose work will charge you up is Imtiaz Dharker, Joe Dunthorne and John Stammers. They perform their poems about power in both its rawest and most subtle states. Poems and ideas are enhanced and amplified with lighting and sound; every spoken word special effect from a whisper to a chorus, every lighting state from a firefly glimmer to a thunderbolt.

'Awe-inspiring!' (audience member in Taunton, where this tour began)

'Ground-breaking!' (audience member in Exeter)

Presented by Jaybird, the company that produced You Are Here at Kings Place in 2010 with Colette Bryce, Daljit Nagra and Jo Shapcott.

Monday 31st October, 6.30 for 7pm start

Hall One, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London, N1 9AG

Tickets: 020 7520 1490


Prices: £9.50 booked online / £11.50 by other methods
