Animation Slam with HOME

Animation Slam at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 29 February–31 December 2020 - Book now

An animated spoken word slam, Animation Slam fuses the fierceness and wit of some of the sharpest minds on the UK spoken word scene with hand-drawn animations by theatre-maker and video designer Edalia Day.

Tackling an eclectic range of topics like dating, politics, gender, ableism, relationships and pandemics, six top poets will be scored by an international panel of 3 judges. Packing a punch, and full of verve and awesomeness, the poets taking part are Aiysha Humpreys, Bogsey, Dami Okhiria, Steve Tasane, Laurie Eaves and Sez Thomasin. UK slam champion Tyrone Lewis, Agnes Török from Sweden, and Rikki Livermore from New Zealand will judge the competition.

Running at a precise 25 mins and 10 seconds long, Animation Slam is taking place as part of the Homemakers Festival, an online festival by HOME Manchester. We love that all of the Homemakers commissions are easily accessible, with tickets available on a ‘Pay What You Can’ basis. The festival features an exciting programme of new commissions created by artists working at home, for audiences who are staying at home.
