Symbiosis @ Bangkok Poetry / 29 October

Please join us for a special Bangkok Poetry guest hosted by Iris and Kenneth!

 The theme is "Symbiosis," and will feature pairings of musicians and writers.

 Space is stil available if you'd like to perform! Contact: .

 If you'd like to perform with a musician, the instruments available to you to choose from our drums, guitar, and saxophone. If you would like to perform (poem, song, story, or graphic novelette), but not in this uber-experimental way and would prefer to go solo (again, stick to the theme as much as possible please) then please get back to us too as we'd love to hear from you as well.

 For performers working in the musico-poetic pairs, you will have more time on stage (15 mins) as a couple, while for people performing individually (in whatever medium), please note that you will have the usual 5-7 minutes.

 Admission is free, but a donation will be taken at the door for ONE SKY FOUNDATION, a registered Thai Foundation working to meet the needs of vulnerable children in the Thai-Burma border district of Sangkhlaburi.

 Arrive early, as inside seating is limited. Beer will be sold on the street where speakers will be set up as well so you can drink and smoke outside if you like.

Remember to RSVP at our FB Event page.

WHEN: Wednesday, September 2 @ 8:00PM (Note: this event is not on our normal Thursday night!) WHERE: WTF Bar and Gallery
THEME: "Broken, Broken, Broken Heart"

 For this event, we've ripped off our theme -- "Broken, Broken, Broken Heart" -- from a song by our very special guest...Jeffrey Lewis!

Be sure to RSVP and check out more links to Jeffrey's work at our Facebook event page.

 If you're interested in performing a poem/song/fiction/graphic-novelette on (or off!) the theme, send an email ASAP to Seven (7) minutes per performer! There are only eight (8) spaces available--so contact us soon if you want to perform.

 Jeffrey Lewis will be performing a solo set at the end of the evening. He will have artwork for sale as well! If you dig him, be sure to check out his full band performance at Play Yard by Studio Bar on Thursday. 

 We look forward to seeing you at WTF for this great event! And spread the word, if you would!

"In Memory" / 22 May

Thanks to all who performed and came out for the last Bangkok Poetry happening a few weeks back -- and/or the special Bombyx Stories event at Opposite last week.

We wanted to give you a heads-up about our next event in a few weeks!

Please join us on Thursday, May 22 at 8:00PM at WTF Cafe & Gallery for "In Memory."

For this event, we're looking for performers who can find some compelling way to explore the theme's many possible meanings. Perhaps you'd like to tackle something about the nature of memory (what we remember, what we forget). Or tell a story that has remained with you for some curious reason. Or maybe you'd like to explore the idea of "memorial" and give an elegy for someone you've known or admired who has passed recently.

If you'd like to perform a poem, rap, short film, graphic novelette, or story (under seven minutes) email us your idea, and we'll get you on the list: .

And if you know of other artistic events going on in the city, please send us the details and we'll spread the word here and on our Facebook page (

"Cover Songs" / 3 April

Thanks to all who performed and came out for the last "Sounds so soulful, don't you agree?" happening.

Please join us on Thursday, April 3 at 8:00PM at WTF Cafe & Gallery for "Cover Songs."

For this event, we're looking for performers who can bring us surprising, creative new versions of their favorite (or least favorite...) poems, stories, songs. Think: "Wrecking Ball" as a spoken word piece. Star Wars as a folk song. Breaking Bad as a haiku.

If you'd like to perform, send us an email at Email soon, as spots will go quickly.

Hope to see you there!

Please join us on Wednesday, November 27 @ 8:00PM for Bangkok Poetry at WTF Cafe and Gallery. The theme is "Violence Against Women," and is inspired by the International Day Against Violence

There will be twelve (12) performance spots available, 5-7 minutes each. For this event we are giving priority to performers/artists who engage the theme. So if you're interested in performing a poem, song, film, graphic novelette, musical amalgamation, or story that in some way addresses "Violence Against Women," then email ASAP: . We are open to submissions in both English and Thai.

If you've attended events at WTF before, you'll remember that the performance space is quite small, seating very limited. This will be an intimate evening, so be sure to arrive early to reserve your place.
