We are storytellers, musicians, spoken word artists and poets, and we are stuck at home. Maybe you know how we feel? So come, escape with us.

Each Sofa Story Club teams up phenomenal, complementary, contrasting artists, who will take you on an adventure from the comfort of your couch. Some live thousands of miles apart and have never shared a space before this moment.

www.sofastory.club is a limited online series of performances curated by writer and performer Rachel Rose Reid. Profits will be donated to charities chosen by the artists.

£5. options exist for the unwaged + for those who can afford more! see our website or ticket link for details

SUNDAY 17 MAY JOYCE LEE + CHRIS REDMOND + THE REPEAT BEAT POET

The Repeat Beat Poet combines contemporary and traditional spoken word and Hip-Hop cultures as a poet, DJ, and Hip-Hop artist and was a Jerwood Poetry Fellowship nominee.

Chris Redmond is a poet, musician, performer and founding front man of Tongue Fu – one of the UK’s leading spoken word shows, touring internationally from Rio to Cape Town and home again.

Joyce Lee travels the world and writes but is not a travel writer. Instead, each place she wanders, each country, is allotted by her to introduce its own spirit. Joyce listens to that spirit and takes notes. Sometimes the note is a memory, sometimes a story, but every time a poetic gift to her audience.
