Poetry Slam: ONE MIC STAND

Mit: Roma Havers, Isaiah Hull, Nicole May, Billie Meredith, Ella Otomewo, Jardel Rodrigues, Naomi Sampson, Reece Williams


»ONE MIC STAND« is a popular poetry slam event that takes place every three months at the Contact Theatre in Manchester. It was brought into being by Young Identity, a spoken word collective founded in Manchester in 2006 by Shirley May and Ali Gadema (who appeares in Thomas Ostermeier’s production »Returning to Reims«) to create a team for the World Cup UK national youth poetry slam. The collective has collaborated with artists such as Lemn Sissay, Saul Williams, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Kate Tempest and Amiri Baraka.
Young Identity first appeared at the Schaubühne during FIND 2018. This year, the collective returns with their new programme – for another ONE MIC STAND evening in Berlin.

Concert: Carol Schuler & The Maenads

Voice: Carol Schuler, Guitar: Lenny Svilar, Bass: Gabriel Weis, Drums: Matthias Trippner, Percussion: Tayfun Schulzke, Horns: Lars Zander, Stefan Kapitzke

Actor Carol Schuler, member of the Schaubühne ensemble since 2017, does not like to be pigeonholed. This is also true of her music: soul, rock, blues, psychedelic – performances with her band The Maenads constitute something between a rock show and a voodoo ceremony. The ingredients are mesmerising rhythms, strenuous guitar riffs, energetic horns and Schuler’s highly expressive voice and performance.
