Voices & Verses

Voices & Verses is a monthly poetry and music night featuring Kuwait’s best and brightest poetic and musical voices. Poets and musicians are chosen through an application process and rehearse over periods of weeks prior to performance nights.

The awesome crew at Artspace hosted us for V&V Season 1, with nights accruing loving audiences of 150+.

Voices & Verses Season 2 will begin in October. Applications for performance will open on August 22.

The Selection Process

Voices & Verses performers are required to submit an application in order to be considered for performance.

Performers are selected by KPS organizers based on talent and ability shown in the application. Though we love our “baby poets” from Season 1, first-time performers will rarely be selected for V&V this coming season, and are instead highly encouraged to register at a Legit Open Mic.

All pieces must be original.
Poetry, spoken word, lyrics, and music must be written by you or a member of your performing group.

Each performer is given up to 7 minutes of time on stage, with a required minimum of at least 2 minutes.

Two rehearsals are set prior to each Voices & Verses night. Performers are required to attend at least one.

A maximum of four performers can be on stage at one time (as a part of a group or collaborative performance).

More info is available on the Voices & Verses Application page.
