Kojey Radical & UnFold

‘one of the most innovative and exciting presentations of the spoken word I have experienced’ Dean Atta, poet

featuring Toby Thompson, Solomon OB, Laurie Ogden

Plus guest talk by poet Deanna Rodger

Lyrix Organix explore what it means ‘To Be Human’ with a double-headliner live show.

UnFold is a critically acclaimed live show that champions the next young stars of spoken word, in collaboration with a contemporary classical string section. This edition shines a spotlight on Toby Thompson (described as ‘the future’ by Kate Tempest), Laurie Ogden and Solomon OB (National Slam champion 2016), in a collection of live performances threaded by a soundscape from London String Collective.

In a special for Brighton Festival, the event is co-headlined by Kojey Radical, an extraordinary 24 year-old poet, musician and striking visual artist. His explosive live shows have led to sold out performances at London’s Jazz Cafe, MOBO Award nominations.

The night also features a special guest talk by internationally acclaimed poet Deanna Rodger exploring 'The Art Of Words’.
