Disrupting the Everyday: Being Human Festival

English; Law 18 October 2017

Soho poly

The Arts and Humanities Research Council and British Academy-funded Being Human festival will run in late November with the theme of ‘Lost and Found’, displaying the hidden stories that humanities research can bring into the light.

The University of Westminster will host ‘Found theatre and poetry: disrupting the everyday’, curated by Matt Morrison of the English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies Department and Guy Osborn of Westminster Law School, as part of the festival.

‘Found theatre and poetry: disrupting the everyday’ offers an opportunity to experience an exciting and various programme of events including a newly commissioned piece of digital theatre, live poetry readings, and an exhibition of rare Nobby Clark photographs.

All of this can be enjoyed in our specially re-opened Soho Poly basement, which operated on the University’s premises between 1972-1990 and is the forerunner of today’s Soho Theatre.

‘Found theatre and poetry: disrupting the everyday’ will be free to visit from 1pm-2.15pm every day, 20-24 November inclusive.

For event information, please contact Matthew Morrison at [email protected]
