Words Having a Ball presents poetry in a completely revolutionary way , allowing  you , the audience , to  dance  though out the show whilst  actively engaging and interacting with performances/performers .

Slow waltz to words and be amazed as poets show you how their tongues do the twist . Dress  up in your  own creations of word decorated corsages and bow ties , eat edible poetry on fairy cakes (which contain hidden surprises). Let poets whisper words in your ear as you dance, or  let the artist on the dance floor  capture  your  poetry in motion as an art work.

Indulge in a little poetry poker, poetraoke or speed disco dancing!

Put on your dancing shoes ! (People with 2 left feet welcome !)  Shy booth for those too shy to dance in public. Dancing heartily encouraged but not obligatory.

Did you know that Socrates took up dancing at the age of 70 because he felt that an important part of his soul had been neglected ?

“ Dance is the poetry of the foot “  said  Dryden ( who also said that “ the chief aim of poetry is to delight “ – hear hear. )

Featuring International poets and artists such as Izabela Filipiak , Lilly-Marie Lamar and Agnieszka Weseli/Furja and their Polish cabaret Hole in the Trinity ,  Sally Crabtree’s Poetry Bingo  , Barndance Bard Alan Munden ,  Underdog , The dancing camera ,  Charlatan Sisters , Jane Spurr , + guests.

Words Having a Ball is being put on by TipofyourTongue  ( the UK’s first ever  performance poetry festival which the Arts Council described as  “ Fresh , exciting , creative and inspiring  – a new festival star “  )  in conjunction with the Polish Cultural Institute.
