On the 24th November this month, Minotaur Theatre Company hosted an evening of New Poetry, hosted by the Birdcage Norwich. A wonderful time was had by all! It was a great opportunity for our company to do something different and take our work off campus and into Norwich city!
The evening featured a variety of poems penned by poetry enthusiasts within Minotaur, as well as special guests. It offered a respectful, supportive atmosphere for poems ranging from the silly to the serious; all to be enjoyed with a pint in hand. There was also a poetry slam battle where the audience decided on a topic and the top ranking poets improvised a poem and it was up to the audience to vote on who the winner would be.
If you missed out, watch the video below by Charlotte Rhodes to get a small taster of the evening.
Thank you to everyone who went along to the New Poetry Slam! It was a fantastic evening and we look forward to doing one again in the future. Congratulations to everyone who was involved and a special well done to Mide Sutobo who won the Slam! She stunned the audience with her powerful creative poems that made the audience freeze in admiration.
