So She Said at The Victoria

28th Sep 2010

So She Said October

So She Said, the monthly celebration of women and words by arts collective Storm in a Teacup, returns to Mile End’s The Victoria a week today, Tuesday 5th October! For a mere £4 suggested donation, you’ll be treated to a night of storytelling, spoken word, poetry and comedy from what they reckon is their best line-up yet.

And since So She Said is all about showcasing and supporting both emerging and established female talent, as well as an assortment of spoken word scene superstars, there will also be open mic opportunities for the brave and the reckless to try their own hand at it too.

Hosted by Hannah Ballou, a neo-burlesque and comedy queen involved with the inimitable Panic Lab collective, the spoken word shenanigans will be headlined by Sabrina Mahfouz, ‘one of the leading lights in the London poetry scene’ according to Popshot magazine, and other highlights will include a mixture of music and narrative from Charlie Henry, and a spine-tingling, blood-spattered re-working of Roald Dahl‘s Fantastic Mr. Fox from Stephe Harrop.

RSVP or sign up for an open mic slot over on Facebook. All proceeds go towards funding Ladyfest Ten, so you’ll also be helping out with the epic Lit at Ladyfest Ten programme we’ve been labouring over of late! See you there…
