Word N Sound presents Modise Sekgothe

date: 27 March 2014
time: 7pm
venue: Sophiatown, 7th str, Melville
entrance: R50

“Word N Sound Presents…” is a platform given to poets to showcase their full-length shows. Whether the show is a theatrical poetry piece, 1-man show or poetry & music performance, is left to the artist.

Our aim is to allow artists an avenue to present their offering to the audience, prior to (or after) the official launch of any such show/product; and for the audience to connect with performers whose work they enjoy, and meet artists whose work they may connect with in an intimate setting that allows for meaning interaction.

For the inaugural Word N Sound Presents…, the stage will be graced by none other than the versatile Modise Sekgothe.
