In The Works is creating stories. Stories that play on your mind. Stories that you haven't heard before, in a way you've never seen before. Stories with more to find in every retelling.
Spoken word theatre, as we see it, takes the modern conventions of performance poetry and uses them to create intricate and gripping narratives. From theatre, we take structure, character and scale. From poetry, we take beauty, innovation and nuance.
In The Works is here to reach out with modern performance poetry mixed with old-fashioned, bardic storytelling. We champion the ambitious and thoughtful, the weird and the wonderful. As a group of artists traditionally excluded from the performing arts, we work on centring those on the fringes.
