Three the Hard Way – Part Two

Thurs 1st October

Join three powerful poets: Jean Binta Breeze MBE, Lydia Towsey and Shruti Chauhan for the launch of this brand new touring work.

Three the Hard Way derives from Jamaican culture where male DJs would respond to each other’s sets in collaboration & competition and the idea was adopted by UK male dub poets, led by Linton Kwesi Johnson in the 80s.

Following a sell out at Upstairs at the Western and a rave-reviewed UK tour in 2014, a stand-alone ‘Part Two’ will once again re-appropriate this format. Together they will sing of sisterhood and connections that cross continents, age and gender, reflecting on the pain and the joy and giving voice to the many moments in between.
