Exchange Words

Exchange Dublin is hosting their first spoken word evening,

'Exchange Words'.

Exchange Words, an evening inspired by the current spoken word

revival, will take place on the 9th of October from 8PM at the

Exchange in Dublin's Temple Bar. With more interest than ever in

storytelling, standup comedy, author readings, live radio theatre and

a burgeoning Irish performance poetry scene, now is the perfect time

to launch a regular spoken word showcase in the heart of Dublin.

Exchange Words will give comedians, writers, actors and storytellers

the chance to collaborate and develop their work for performance in a

welcoming, all ages, alcohol free environment.

The line up for their first event include Shinoxcy, a new all girl

sketch comedy group, including Roxanna Nic Liam, star of hit Absolut

Fringe play 'Rough'; the Crazy Dog Audio theatre- Ireland's number one

live radio theatre company, whose work has appeared on RTE Radio 1,

and on US radio; storytellers from new Dublin group Milk and Cookies;

and fresh from their packed out performances at this years Electric

Picnic, top International spoken word performers Cliff Horseman &

Andrej Kapor.

Tickets for the event are € 5 / € 3 concessions, and will be available

on the night.

About Exchange Dublin -

Exchange Dublin is a new collective arts centre in Temple Bar, Dublin

run entirely by young people and holding discussions, gigs, visual

arts and performance. Most projects originate from the autonomous

“Exchange Groups” that use the space as a hub for their activity.

Representatives from these groups form the general Exchange Dublin

Collective that programmes and coordinates events in the space. All

work is voluntary and no one is paid.

Press materials (including high resolution images) are available at, and at the Facebook group -
