Cutting Beats: World Poetry Day

Cutting Beats: Open Mic Night | 7pm

Join Cutting East in celebrating World Poetry Day when we hold our very own open mic session – Cutting Beats - at our annual festival.

Hosted by performance poet and Genesis’ resident Slam Poetry guru, Sara Hirsch, Cutting Beats offers a friendly platform for new spoken word artists to increase their stock and showcase their talents. Interspersed with performance from regular slammer, Angry Sam, and lyrical films from Mellow 9, performers will be asked to recite poetry and perform a piece on the theme, The Voice for a Voiceless.
As is the etiquette of a spoken word event, Cutting Beats will be open to anyone, so you will be able to sign up on the door. If you don’t feel like competing just sit back in the comfy sofas and enjoy the entertainment.
