Jean 'Binta' Breeze and Tracie Morris

Tickets : £8.00

renaissance one and The Drum present an evening of conversation and performance from two leading international figures, the acclaimed Jamaican poet and dub artist Jean 'Binta' Breeze and the acclaimed US poet and voice artist Tracie Morris, supported by Shakti Women.

Experience their electric stage presence, rhythmic wordplay and their perspectives on the power of words, reggae music, freedom, and other themes celebrating the human experience.

"Jean Breeze ... poetry shifts effortlessly through standard English to a native Jamaican which has no equal in its emotional depth" - The Herald

"Tracie Morris brilliantly spearheads the ongoing experiment black artists conduct at the intersection of language and music. She sounds like how we want to sound." - University of California
