The Online Open Mic event hosted by The Soweto Theatre invites poets to the 2nd Online Open Mic Challenge that showcases spoken word performances from SA’s emerging talent.
The competition determines the winner by the number of likes given on Facebook to each performance by the voting public. The videos are posted on the event page, that displays the poet with the highest number of likes, who automatically qualifies to perform at the Theatre’s monthly Poetic Thursdays after the National Lockdown.
The Soweto Theatre provides a platform for these artists to share their talent on a wider scale, as well as orchestrating entertainment through community theatre made accessible to the broader public.
Young up-and-coming artists are competing in the event that is led by host and director ‘Poetic Justice’. The winner of the event is announced on the 1 June 2020.
