Welcome to Chalkwell Park’s ‘Spoken Word Tours’ – three new pieces of work created and curated by Mark Grist and MC Mixy.
ARTISTS: Mark Grist & DJ MixySince 2009 Mixy has also put out a selection of recorded projects, mixtapes, EPs and albums, showing his versatility to work with a range of artists and on many styles of rap beats, live music and even classical music. Since 2010 Mixy has been travelling around providing writing and performance worshops based around rap and poetry to schools, colleges, universities and referral units across the country, as well as playing gigs and hosting events. In 2012 Mixy had a storming run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his first solo spoken word show ‘Content’ which gained him much praise and a range of glowing reviews
Makes Mike Skinner of The Streets look decidedly average. A rare talent with an almost supernatural sense of flow. Major-label A&R people: you’re welcome
Not to be missed, Content is an hour spent in great company filled with interesting stories and intricate spoken word. Great lyrics and poetry performed by an engaging, affable bloke.
His passion is obvious and his ability to construct rhymes that convey heartfelt stories, is not only impressive, but masterful in execution. Mixy has the personality and ability to connect with an audience and present his own unique interpretation of his life.
You’ll be introduced, laugh, flirt, share intimate moments and stories, fall head over heels, feel the pang of lost love and heartbreak. A journey through the mind of an intelligent, creative MC that slipped through the cracks, turning negatives into positives and expressing himself how he does best.
HOW TO: This app contains three Spoken Word tours, designed to give you a personalised and very different experience of Chalkwell Park.Fancy listening to a hip-hop love story that plays out over 25 years all around you? Or how about taking the ‘What said that?’ tour and see if you can solve our poetry riddles? Perhaps you’d rather see how the park has inspired local primary school pupils to write their own poems? Whichever tour you go for you can be sure of a unique and engaging walk through the grounds of Chalkwell Park. If you are not able to visit the park then select the armchair mode to listen to the works.
