Speak.easy……………………………say the word

For Immediate Release

Speak.easy……………………………say the.word


Premieres Bats Theatre
17-18th October 2003

Step out of the cold, verse thirsty night
Into the warm ribs of a welcoming house
Where wine and song are poured forth
In a proud libation of free jazz celebration

From the crew who brought you The Word Festival and Magellan (Nominated Best New Media, Fringe NZ 2003), Speakeasy brings together the Word Collective’s finest new jazz poets in a cabaret savvy show as part of the 7th Wellington International Jazz Festival.

Featuring the ethereal voice of Ciara Mulholland and Shakespeare’s Bitch, the syncopated styles and improvisation of The Winter and the poetry of Craig Ireson, Dave Edwards, Jonny Potts, Felix Preval and Guests.

Six poets, two bands, one hour of breathtaking collaboration. Speakeasy is reminiscent of a time when jazz and poetry were subversive, secret passions. Speakeasy introduces the new voices from Wellington’s beat underground.

Performance Dates and Times: 17-18th October (Friday, Saturday) 8:30pm
Tickets: $14 Waged/$10 Unwaged
Book at Bats: (04) 802 4175

If you want to know
Where the Beat Brigands go
When the juke joints close
Just knock three times and say the word:
Speakeasy
