One Foot in the Rave is coming to Nottingham!

Hello! I have some exciting news. I’m bringing some award winning spoken word theatre to Nottingham on 17th April, if you fancied popping down.

One Foot In The Rave is the debut verse play from performance poet Alexander Rhodes. The show is an energetic mix of agony and total ecstasy. Set to a backdrop of remixed club classics, Alexander moves effortlessly between the characters and scenes, delivering the chemical highs and pitiful lows.

Supported by DIY Poets.

Friday 17th April, @ City Arts, Nottingham. Doors 7.30pm, show starts at 8pm.

Tickets are £10 / £8 concessions, available from here: https://city-arts.org.uk/event/15302/one-foot-in-the-rave/

You can read more about the show here: https://www.alexanderrhodes.me.uk/#one-foot-in-the-rave

The play is magnificent, full of twists, turns, emotion and 90s classics. This is the biggest event I’ve put on to date, so it’d be great if it was a sell out.

Maybe see you there 🙂

Squiggles and Sounds

Hello 🙂 I hope to be posting on here more regularly from now on. In the meantime, here’s a video of me from the World Jam Anthology book launch at Peggy’s Skylight in April 2019. Better late than never, right!

The anthology showcases poems in many different languages, from first and second language English speakers who have made Nottingham their home. The poem is a celebration of language, of how our different ways to say the same stuff can unite us. I hope you like it! If you don’t, then apologies for wasting 102 seconds of your time.

Thanks to John Berry for filming.
