Arrest That Poet (PBHs Free Fringe 2014)
By George Robb | Published on Thursday 14 August 2014
Danny Chivers is the nerdy, eccentric eco-slam-poet behind ‘Arrest that Poet’. He may come across as an eccentric individual, but you find yourself hanging on every strangely enunciated word. Chivers is a man whos been at the frontline of several high-profile, non-violent eco-battlegrounds, armed with nothing more than determination, a pen and some paper. He mixes well-crafted poetry with exciting, enraging and inspiring tales of his life as an activist. Am I praising him because its my moral duty to? Partly, but thats because Chivers was convincing enough to make it my moral duty; he changed the way I perceive activists. So hop on your bike and schlep down to the Stafford Centre its worth it.
The Stafford Centre, until 13 Aug
