Rowan James’ ‘Easy For You To Say’ / 9 June 2015

We are pleased to be supporting Rowan James’ bid to raise £1500 to complete his debut Edinburgh Fringe run this year as part of the iF (Integrated Fringe) Platform. 

Rowan and his team are seeking support to pay for their accommodation and food during their stay, plus production and technical support to make the show as professional and polished as it can be.

Please click here to check out the campaign page and rewards and donate whatever you can to the future of performance poetry.

Rowan is a hip hop and punk-inspired poet diagnosed with a specific learning difficulty and speech impediment, often disabled by other people’s perceptions. 

Marv Radio is a beatboxer with dexterous lips and an arsenal of sounds. With big beats and big words, and the rhythm of Rowan’s irregular heartbeat, they ask you to consider the effects of a society obsessed with normality. 

In a world of normcore fashion and statistical averages, what’s so important about blending in? Commissioned by Cambridge Junction. Supported by Escalator Performing Arts. Part of Stopgap Dance Company’s iF Platform.

This Dao crowdfunding campaign is part of a Catalyst-supported fundraising experiment in partnership with Salisbury Arts Centre, The Point, Eastleigh  and Stopgap.
