Teen Slam Round One
Eight schools have a go at winning the 2003 Inner London Teen Slam trophy. In round one they’re dealing with stage fright, a team member sneaking in a new poem, others broke down under pressure.
Who will win?
Are the winners from a Hackney, Lambeth or Southwark school? Will rivals make new friendships across boundary lines?
This exciting, lively, inspiring three-part slam was directed and produced by Nu Heh in 2003. London pupils and their poet coaches Peter, Malika, Mariahadessa, Jacob and Fatimah battle to win the first teen slam.
Some smashed it, others forgot their lines. Live from the Bloomsbury theatre with award-winning poet judges Kevin Coval, Dorothea Smartt and Roger Robinson.
