Spoken word. Electric music. Fiery performances after one another to shatter boundaries. Disrupt the silence. Start a conversation.
Are you a poet, a dancer, or a musician eager to shine? Do you want an open space where you can speak out about social issues?
Back by popular demand, the Global Diversity team from Lap-Chee College is back to host another thrilling edition of Slam & Jam Night! Building on the success of last semester’s performances, we want to encourage more of you to share your creativity on stage!
What is slam poetry? A contrast against the academic nature of traditional poetry, slam poetry is a spoken word performance that aims to revitalise political discourse and give voice to the marginalised. You might have seen some popular examples of slam poetry, like Niel Hilborn’s “OCD” or Rachael Rostad’s “To JK Rowling, from Cho Chang”.
Who is eligible? Any student or staff from HKU! Unlike traditional slams, our Slam & Jam Night will not be competitive. Feel free to perform whatever you want in a judgment-free environment!
What are we looking for? Mainly, your original works in the English language. However, we also welcome poetry recitals written by a poet you admire, or even musical and dance performances.
Date: 28th March, 2018 (Wednesday)
Time: Starting 8pm
Venue: CPD 2.77
Our theme this semester is Relationships & Connections. You are welcome to interpret or draw inspiration from our theme as much as you want.
