Do you enjoy slam poetry and spoken word? We present eight great slammers: Who will win? That’s up to you and the rest of the audience.

Four times a year Expat Poetry Slam competition is organized at Valby Culture House. These events are 100% English speaking shows, set up for international citizens as well as for tourists and local Danes – basically, everyone who wants to enjoy English speaking shows. These shows feature both Danish performers, other performers who live in Denmark as well as performers traveling here from other countries.

Not just spoken words

Poetry slam is a mixture of poetry, storytelling, inputs, rap and much more – and often a mixture of everything.  It is not only a competition for the poetry slammers, but most of all it is a social gathering based on linguistic and artistic expression.

Former Danish champion is hosting the show 

Peter Dyreborg is an experienced man when it comes to poetry slam. He runs monthly poetry slams and spoken word shows at The Royal Danish Theatre’s playhouse in Copenhagen as well as in Valby at Valby Culture House.

Dansk version/Danish version

Poetry Slam in English henvender sig primært til engelsktalende borgere og turister, men alle engelsktalende kan få en oplevelse ud af det. Vi tilbyder også en del shows på dansk. I foråret temashows og i efteråret de indledende runder til københavnermesterskabet, hvor den store finale finder sted i januar.
