Youth poets (aged 12–20) are asked to break one of the classic poetry slam rules. Wear a costume, use props, perform a cover poem, perform a group piece, play a musical instrument or combine all those together. Whatever you do though you must break one of the slam rules. Open sign-up. Be creative, have fun! In addition to the slam, this show will feature youth performing original work inspired by, in response to, and in honour of Zaccheus Jackson Nyce.
This show is All Ages. General seating. Box office and Will Call will open with doors at 7pm. Box office is CASH ONLY. There is an ATM located directly across the street. No advance tickets are available for this show, but festival passes will be accepted.
Café Deux Soleils has been the main venue for the Vancouver Poetry Slam since 1999. It is sold out every Monday by fans of spoken word poetry. It is an iconic venue run by a staff that are friendly and promote progressive values.
Café Deux Soleils is a semi-accessible venue to wheelchairs and scooters. They have recently completely renovated the bathrooms, installing three ungendered stalls. However there is no wheelchair-accessible bathroom. Please read the full report from the Radical Accessibility Mapping Project for more details.
