Inua Elams (amazing)
These are some of the photos I took for The Word House, a great new spoken word night at the Gallery Cafe in Bethnal Green. The night was headlined by the brilliant Inua Elams, Christian Watson and John Berkavitch, all proceeds going to Oxjam.
Of the open mic-ers, two in particular stood out: Emma Jones with a hilarious poem about the kind of white middle class people who move to Clapham, and Captain of the Rant with an anarchic, wonderful poem about reclaiming romance.
The next Word House event will be in the new year and you can keep updated and see the rest of my photos from the night by liking the facebook page. More info on all the artists here. I wrote a short review of the last Word House event in Urban Bards, a great blog by Kieran Yates about spoken word in London, which you can read here.
