& Collection for Bristol Kinergy charity
Aiysha is a Bristol- based poet and spoken word performer. Their poetry deals with the difficult topics of mental illness, love, trauma and gender identity. They exude an enchanting calmness in the delivery of their poetry that contrasts the harrowing nature of what they write about. Aiysha’s work may leave you shell shocked, but you’ll be warmed by their charming personality, funky fashion sense and often self-deprecating sense of humour.
They have competed in the Milk Poetry Grand Slam and qualified for the Hammer & Tongue regional finals.
7:30pm-7:50pm Kat Lyons- Spoken word & Story telling
Kat is a Bristol-based poet and performance storyteller currently working with spoken word promoter Raise the Bar. She won the 2017 Bristol Storyfest Story Slam, was a regional finalist in the 2018 Hammer and Tongue slam, and won both the Milk Poetry Superslam and the Lyra: Bristol Poetry Festival slam.
She brings her storytelling experience to her poetry and mixes serious subjects with a light touch, exploring themes as diverse as mass extinction, ageing, the #metoo movement, and grief-induced bad haircuts. She was once paid to ride an electric dinosaur around the centre of Bath, which remains the highlight of her career.
Kat sees spoken word performance as the original DIY entertainment, and believe it has the power to engage all ages and demographics in creatively interpreting their experiences. She believes that poetry is relevant to everyone, and that everyone has a story to tell, and a voice worth hearing.
8:00pm-8:20pm Raina Greifer- Spoken word
Raina Greifer uses poetry and playwriting to explore trauma, identity, and intimacy. By combining surrealism with experimental form she transports her listeners to vibrant worlds filled with magic, broken teeth, and wolves. Her first full length show, Mesa, AZ or Something Like It premiered at the DC Capital Fringe Festival in July 2018, receiving a five star review. She founded sleepwalkersartcollective.org, an art collective with the purpose of giving new artists exposure, and has also had pieces published by Constellations and The Awakenings
8:30pm-8:50pm Holly Moberley- Spoken word
Holly Moberley started performing and writing spoken word poetry over a year ago and, like with any addiction, hasn't been able to stop since. This year she competed with the Bath Spa UniSlam team who reached the national semi-final. This coming year, Holly will be running Poetry+, one of Bath's local poetry events, and is soon to be Vice President of Bath Spa's Spoken Word Society. In her poetry Holly ponders life in all its intricacies, making a meal out of metaphors with her softness for the sauce.”
