Spoken Word by Kommune

Supported by TATA TRUSTS

Word-based Performance Art

Poetry that is brought to life via performances is with actions that are as loud as words. The art of the spoken word is not only rooted in oral traditions but it is also at the intersection of two brilliant worlds. It is an all-encompassing art form that encapsulates diverse elements from jazz and hip-hop to storytelling and the Blues. And this is just scratching the surface. Rhyme, repartee and improvisation are vital aspects of spoken word performances. While discussing spoken word in the Indian context, the first name that comes to mind is Kommune. Considered to be one of the country’s most exciting performance arts forums, they always go the extra mile to break norms and cause a dent in the cosmos while harnessing the power of words and dynamic performances. Kommune has served as an artistic oasis for countless amazing performers and artistes.
