Spoken word trailblazers Apples & Snakes return to Stockton’s ARC on Saturday 9th November with another instalment of their Deranged Poetesses showcase.

Having scoured the North for some of the best female and non-binary poets, this month’s event will focus on the theme of ‘Sound | Waves’, with performance and visual projections combining in what’s sure to be a unique show.

Performers include headline act Gevi Carver, a Sheffield-based artist who combines music and poetry, her piece entitled She Tells Sea Shells explores how her relationship with the sea has helped her through personal struggles; also performing will be Colly Metcalf, a deaf poet and actor from Teesside, whose piece The Sound Of My Silence will be performed in British Sign Language; a star of Manchester collective Young Identity, Ayomide Aboloji uses body percussion, singing, silence, dance and spoken word in her piece Cause And Effect; Yorkshire-born queer artist Sorcha McCaffrey’s intriguing work kwaɪət kwɪə explores tiny sounds and queerness discovered amidst fictional heroines; funny feminist Julie Easley’s work is a bizarre tale of a Transformer robot gone rogue; while Katie Jarman’s He Said She Said touches on themes of misogyny and female empowerment.

Before the show, Gevi Carver will provide a special workshop exploring the relationships between live music and poetry.
