New Cardiff Performance Event (LISTEN)

LLIISSTTEENN
(LISTEN)
 will be launched July 4 2019 at Gentileza

LAUNCH EVENT – (LISTEN) 1

WHAT IS (LISTEN)?

Each (LISTEN) event will offer featured performers a chance to deliver an extended set in the intimate surroundings of Gentileza. No microphones. Just a welcoming space for the performers to be heard by an audience that truly wants to listen

After each performance has been heard, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions. The Q&A will be overseen by event creator, organiser and host Steven Kenward, himself a musician, songwriter and performer.

As an appreciator of all kinds of performance, Steven formerly organised and hosted the open mic event WHAT YA GOT? This offered performers slots of up to ten minutes but (LISTEN) is not an open mic event.

Via (LISTEN) Steven hopes that the audience and the different featured performers at each event  will benefit from people being given more time to show more of what they are capable of.

Every (LISTEN) will be different from every other (LISTEN)

There is no entry fee. But you are free to show your appreciation on a donation basis, if what you hear moves, excites, amuses you or simply, for whatever reason, makes you feel glad you decided to drop by at Gentileza and lend your ears to (LISTEN).

FREE SPOKEN WORD OPEN MIC! 

This month, RARA will be hosted by

 

 

Will Ford

and

Bridget Leggy Tanner

 

 

Bridget Leggy Tanner and Will Ford will both offer you some words of their own, as well as welcoming and introducing readers to the unique laidbackness of RARA (shut up spell checker, laidbackness is a word, ok?).

Whether you wish to spit fire at an unjust world, warm the heart and ears of the listener, express unique and quirky insight, at RARA you have five minutes to use in whatever sweet, silly, serious or bonkers way you see fit. Free your words, show us the world through your eyes, paint pictures purely with alphabetical components

RARA is brought to you each month in association with Dave Daggers, Will Ford and the very kind people at the Mackintosh Sports and Social Club, Keppoch Street, Roath, Cardiff.

But without the lovely, inventive, enthusiastic and incredibly beautiful people who come along to share their letter based creations there could be no RARA, so thank you if you have ever come along before, and future thanks are waiting for those yet to enter the friendly, welcoming atmos of a RARA night, where variety is guaranteed, laughs can be anticipated and provocation of thought and sometimes a touch of bemused mystification are part of the mix of material you will encounter

FREE ENTRY, FREE TO WATCH, FREE TO TAKE PART Slots of around ten minutes

The theme is non-compulsory but hosts Steve Speakeasy and Jonathon Owens will love you all the more more if you can add something Oasis related to your normal set choices. The author of this blog will be doing something silly with an Oasis flavour and maybe an acapella cover done more respectfully. Plus, maybe, possibly, how would it sound if a swarm of bees covered an Oasis song. 

DISCLAIMER: NO BEES WILL BE HARMED OR EVEN PRESENT ON THE NIGHT

Come one, come all, COME!!!
