The Alliance Francais in Parkview, Johannesburg, has been hosting a regular poetry event called the House of Hunger for some time now. This Saturday, 23 February, I get to make my first appearance at one of their events.

For the event, the focus is on Mother tongue and thus will feature poetry in veneq (Mother tongue) from various performer in the Slam section of the event and traditional music on the Jam Session as a celebration of our National Mother Tongue Day.

Predictably this means I will of course be performing in English and I have a short slot during the Jam Session segment of the afternoon’s proceedings.

The event kicks off at Alliance Francais in Lower Park drive, Parkview. Check out the event page on Facebook for more details.
