A poetry and music one-person show written by and starring Adisa with a guest appearance by Randolph Matthews and produced by Melanie Abrahams, it explores one of the most profound years of the 20th century. With a theme of Revolution, it explores the voices and movements of 68, drawing inspiration from the folk, reggae, soul, afrobeat and pop music of the time. It exposes the power of the collective voice and its effect on politics, religion, culture and artistic expression.
Performance poet Adisa is a favourite on the UK scene. He's been a New Performance Poet of the Year and a Hackney Poet Laureate and has been published in anthologies including Poems Out Loud and Velocity.
"Adisa is the future. It's so good to have something to look forward to." Benjamin Zephaniah
