Three Men Talking - Colm, Kalle, Stephen - (c) Jessica Ryan - www.comfyphotography.com

“Three of Ireland’s leading performance poets – Colm Keegan, Kalle Ryan and Stephen James Smith – take the audience on a cathartic, emotional journey into the heart of who they are. Digging into subjects that men may not traditionally explore like love, relationships, loss, family and self doubt, they explore what it really means to be a man. 

Three Men Talking has had hugely successful sold out runs at ABSOLUT Fringe 2011, the Turnaround Rep Season in Project Arts Centre 2012, as well as the 2012 Kinsale Arts Festival. The show has been nominated for the ‘Bewleys Cafe Theatre Little Gem’ award in 2011 and is currently in development to be made into a feature film. 

Colm, Kalle and Stephen James are all award winning writers and slam-poetry champions in their own right, having performed at several prestigious literary festivals & venues across Ireland and around the world. This is their first play.”

a documentary about performance poetry in Dublin

Last year Danny Carroll (2XM) put together the first ever documentary about the current performance poetry scene that is brewing and fizzing here in bubblin’ Dublin. It is now available for the first time online and features lengthy excerpts from the brownbread mixtape, as well as an interview with our resident MC and house poet Kalle Ryan. A lovely snapshot of a moment in time and while much has changed even since it was made (The Glor Sessions no longer exists) , it features some great performances and interviews with many of Dublin’s leading performers, all of whom are past performers at the brownbread mixtape (incl. Fergus Costello, Stephen James Smith, Abby Oliveira, Raven, CAH-44 and Colm Keegan) . Yeah, POETRY!
