Vancouver Poetry Slam

Performing Arts in Commercial Drive

If you thought poetry was a tweedy, soporific experience, check out the weekly events organized by the Vancouver Poetry House at Cafe Deux Soleils for a taste of high-speed, high-stakes slamming. The expert performers will blow your socks off with their verbal dexterity, which often bears more than a passing resemblance to rap.

There's an open-mic element to every slam night, so now's your big chance to hop on stage and give it all you've got.
