Hullabaloo All Star Slam

Hullabaloo All Star Slam

Verses Festival of Words kicks off with Hullabaloo: a celebration of BC youth spoken word.  And the always popular Hullabaloo All Star Slam at the Rio Theatre returns this year, featuring a battle between heavyweights of the Canadian slam scene!

Hosted by Regina’s Johnny Trinh, the 2017 edition of the All Star Slam sees Charlie C Petch from Toronto, Dana I.D. Matthews from Vancouver, and Rabbit Richards from Montreal compete in a three-round poetry slam – with students judging!  Once the dust has settled, and the winner has been declared, there’s time for a Q&A with the artists.
