Join Manchester and Liverpool’s favourite son Gerry Potter alongside his friends Chanje Kunda and Dave Viney for an outspoken evening of performance poetry.
Gerry Potter is a theatre-verse explorer of a very different kind. An LGBTQ+ icon, his poetry combines a strong Scouse voice with fantastical Queerology, colliding in a life most certainly lived and confidently outspoken.
Chanje Kunda is a poet, playwright and performance artist with an established international reputation. Poetry performances include features at The Royal Albert Hall London, the Calabash Literature Festival, Jamaica, and the Royal Exchange, Manchester. During an artist residency in the Netherlands, she performed in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Eindhoven and Groningen. Chanje won the New Writing North Award in 2015 and was commissioned to produce content for the BBC.
Dave Viney is a Mancunian performance poet, playwright and facilitator. Co-host of Bang Said the Gun: Manchester, he has performed at venues across the Country including Greater Manchester’s own Lowry Theatre. His play works include Amateur Thematics (2012), Writer’s Retweet (2013) – both with Working Verse Collective – and Rusholme Roulette (2013), a solo project, chosen by the BBC for their Turn Up the Talent Showcase.
