ED2012 Words & Events Review: Other Voices – Alternative Spoken Word and Cabaret (Other Voices / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Thursday 16 August 2012

With pint in one hand and (free!) sweets in the other, alternative bar-style entertainment is what’s on offer in this festival event at ‘The Banshee Labyrinth’. Feel the beat as prosaic pop-poetry meanders through the depths of this claustrophobic cavern; offering alternative perspectives on everything from feminism to fairy tales, it’s not quite classic, but you won’t be disappointed with the quirky and varied smorgasbord of sounds and styles. Furthermore, with this show’s performers plugging their solo performances, it’s a prime place to get an idea of what’s on offer elsewhere. Don’t expect this to be the most slickly rehearsed show in town, but if the line-up remains at this standard, then it’s worth a visit to make your ears itch.

The Banshee Labyrinth, 4-25 Aug (not 8, 15, 22), 2.50pm.
