Spoken World - What do you believe in? Do you have any dreams? Eight young people from Brussels, between 15 and 25, will be taking these questions as the basis for a speech they will write and give at the Spoken World Festival. The director Dirk Verstockt will be coaching them.
Spoken World - Amiri Baraka and Saul Williams are two big names in Afro-American spoken word. In the late fifties, Amiri Baraka (1934) made his name as a beat poet under his original name of LeRoi Jones. Saul Williams (1972) is several generations younger and one of the most powerful voices in alternative hip hop.
