Battle of the Poets
Thu, 30 Mar 2017, 15:00 – Sat, 1 Apr 2017, 18:30 IST
You’ve heard of rap battles. But have you seen a poetry battle? This isn’t a poetry slam, a ‘battle of the bands’ type contest – the poets won’t be judged against each other. It is a battle of ideas; a poetic debate. Prominent spoken word artists, divided into two teams, will present their arguments poetically, and the audience must decide which side is most persuasive. Expect humour, verbal mud-slinging, and new ideas to think about. No prizes for winning, but the losers must eat their words.
