Joelle Taylor

Joelle Taylor does not mess about. Her poetry is fearless.’ - Benjamin Zephaniah 

‘A city gritty heart beaten tattoo’ - John Hegley 

A fusion of poetry and spoken word; a journey through the council estates of the UK, via deserted tower blocks and back street parties, through to immigration centres in coastal towns and broken backed sofas where everything you have ever lost will be returned to you. This is a powerful spoken word performance about resilience, survival and tiny rebellions that quietly change the world. ‘Joelle Taylor’s a shape-shifter, myth maker, linguistic risk taker; poetical activist, surrealist with a raised fist’ - Patience Agbabi ‘In these times of austerity, hypocrisy, political corruption, and mindless reality television, we need poetry like this.

Joelle Taylor does not mess about. Her poetry is fearless.’ - Benjamin Zephaniah

‘A city gritty heart beaten tattoo’ - John Hegley
