"Your brain has more connections, interspersed,
than there are stars in the Universe."
But what if they were lost?
Inspired by the power & fragility of the human brain, UN4GHETTOBLE explores how, in a maze of memories, it is possible to find yourself - and maybe save someone else.
An honest & collaborative sharing of our lockdown experiences through 20/ 21.
Filmed in our classes - with empowerment, community & joy at the heart of our creativity - 'Higher Power' is a celebration of personal growth, strength in the face of adversity, & individual greatness as we overcome collective challenge.
A reflection of 2020; the aim was to explore and harness our individual experiences to create a positive, powerful testimony of a year unprecedented in many ways.

Part of our Virtual Season, Autumn 2020.
A celebration of individuality, life experiences, human connection and spoken-word performance.
Words are life: they are mantras, medicine, weapons, prisons and liberation, sanctuary, sabotage, identity, disguise, protection, destruction, devotion, they are creation, wisdom, connection. They are our heritage and our future. They are us.
'Word/Slam' brings spoken word workshops to communities, encouraging self-expression, empathy & understanding; exploring identity and discovering the voice within, to connect & to inspire empowered storytelling.
Sharing our words brings powerful change, within ourselves and others, so poetry slam performance opportunities are an important and exciting part of what we work towards. Ready your ears...
LOOPS - POET
'Loops' is Laura's pseudonym for her poetry. 'Loops' seems fitting; having been Laura's family nickname since childhood it's very much part of who she is, whilst 'loops' also feel prevalent in the world around us -
from our handwriting on the page
and the stories we tell
to memories relived
and hopes laid out
beginnings, endings and
- reflective of life and what it means to be human, a major driver for Laura's writing.
Passionate about poetry since her teens, Loops finds it a beautiful way to explore & express thoughts and feelings; the wit and poignancy of language, the joyful, cathartic and hopeful connection wordplay can bring - in even the briefest of honestly & carefully stitched lines; the space between the text saying as much as the words themselves.
