The 2017 Van Slam Team is here to knock your socks off with solo and ensemble pieces they’ve prepared to compete in tournaments and at festivals across the country. It’s no easy feat to earn a spot on this team. To even qualify for the final playoff event, poets have to gain points by ranking in the top four at Van Slams throughout the year. This year’s final was held in April, and today you’ll see the some of the foremost practitioners of this art form. Come cheer on this year’s crew and enjoy an exclusive and explosive show before they head out on tour as ambassadors of Vancouver’s vital spoken word scene.

Suitable for grades 8-12 and adults.

Presented in partnership with the Vancouver Poetry House.
