VERVE, the late night opening for young people aged 14+, makes a much-anticipated return to The Fitzwilliam Museum this week. Launching the Museum’s Big Draw events for 2009, VERVE focuses on drawn images and spoken word artists.
Headlining the event is rising performance poet and artist Dockers MC, who reprises her appearance at the Fitz’s first-ever VERVE in January 2009 - an event which attracted an audience of nearly 200. Known for her work as an artwork illustrator for Kate Nash and Scroobius Pip, her first book, Mistakes in the Background was published last year. Dockers MC will be joined on Saturday by performance poet Polar Bear, a regular at poetry nights and festivals around the country who has been seen most recently hosting the Roundhouse Slam Final.
Also on offer at VERVE this Saturday:
Interactive drawing with light show from theatre company Indefinite Articles Hands-on workshops in drawing and animation Animation shorts by Cambridge School of Art students
VERVE is at The Fitzwilliam Museum on Saturday 10 October 2009: doors open 6pm. Admission is free.
