About the event

On July 25th and 26th at The Moth Club in Hackney, giffgaff, the mobile network run by you, is bringing to life People Powered Poetry; the world’s first AI-fuelled improvised poetry event. People Powered Poetry will see live performances from celebrated artists who will improvise poetry on real-time trending topics with hilarious and thought-provoking results. The rotation of artists, including spoken-word poets and comedians, will each perform a set based on a current trending topic on social media, utilising their own talents to entertain.

The lineup over the two nights is sure to electrify, from musical talent such as beatbox Champion Bellatrix to spoken-word sensation Deanna Rodgers. Celebrated spoken-word poets including Hussain Manawer (who recently sold out the Jazz Cafe) and Bridget Minamore (the original Youth London Poet Laureate).

Laugh out loud moments can be expected from Sarah Callaghan, who has previously been seen in front of erupting crowds at the Edinburgh fringe, and Steve Whiteley aka Wisebowm, the world’s first urban musical poet - must be seen to be believed. Over the two nights at The Moth Club, the audience can expect to be kept on their toes as the specially-curated lineup take it in turns to delight and excite, all hosted by the hilarious Jayde Adams.

Each evening will also see exciting live musical performances from the fiercely original beatboxer Bellatrix and Benin City - the London-based three-piece comprised of vocalist and poet Joshua Idehen, vocalist Shanaz Dorsett with multi-instrumentalist Tom Leaper. Topped off with a DJ set by Charlie Bones (NTS).
