Asheville-based spoken word collective The Literary Circus performs daring feats of word wrangling and hosts an open mic at Habitat Tavern and Commons on Saturday, May 6. Audiences will be amazed by dangerous prose and acrobatic poetry. It’s possible that at least one circus performer will jump through a flaming hoop, though no lions are allowed in the pub. Brave audience members are invited to bring five minutes of prose or poetry to read onstage (sign up is on a first-come, first-served basis) and there will be live music between sets. Free!
The Literary Circus is the collaborative effort of local authors/performers Jennifer Fulford, Randi Janelle, Nina Hart and Alli Marshall.
