#6 - What Words Are Ours?
By Talia Randall
A tongue-twisting, thigh-slapping, tear-jerking poetry-cabaret show featuring poets and performers Zia Ahmed, Lisa Luxx, Jackie Hagan, Cheryl Dole, Amina Jama, The Repeat Beat Poet and of course me - Talia Randall. Most of today's episode was recorded live at my poetry knees-up What Words Are Ours? Today's partner is Free Word Centre in London. The venue and I were due to collaborate on my show What Words Are Ours? a night that showcases D/deaf and hearing artists on the same stage. Like so many other live shows, it was cancelled due to Covid-19. So instead Free Word Centre commissioned me reimagine What Words Are Ours? for their new digital season called Finding Power in Isolation. Along with this podcast episode I'll be bringing you Visual Vernacular and BSL interpreted poetry videos in the coming weeks and months. This is all part of us trying to keep What Words Are Ours? alive during the pandemic. Support the show by listening, watching, subscribing sharing with your pals and leaving us a lush review!
