Existed Once

Saturday 5th June 2021

Sheffield’s former poet laureate and rap poet Otis Mensah takes to the Crucible stage for this show’s debut in-person performance – a series of jazz-infused songs, ‘rap hymns’ and poetic workings accompanied by animation art from Sheffield illustrator Jim Spendlove.

The performance wrestles with themes of mental health, vulnerability and identity whilst exploring the concept of art as existential archiving in a time where our mortality feels ever more imminent.

The show will include an opening performance from Manchester based writer and performance artist SheBeKeke with the event to be followed by a live conversation and Q&A.
