Talia Randall is an artist, writer and performer with a growing following.
A dyslexic who was raised in a house where puns, cheap witticisms and double entendre were art forms of the highest rank, Talia found a home in spoken word and developed her voice at the revered Roundhouse Poetry Collective in 2010. She now works across various art forms; her work is genre defying and ‘anti-discipline’.
As well as gigging solo across the UK at legendary venues such as The Roundhouse, Wales Millennium Centre, Bristol Old Vic, Glastonbury and The Edinburgh Fringe, she also creates and hosts playful, political variety shows featuring some of the UK’s most innovative and daring artists.
Having grown up in youth projects herself, social engagement is at the heart of Talia’s practice. This community work is at the core of what she does and not just the ‘bread and butter’.
Current shows include Question Time Cabaret ‘a fun, rowdy, political knees up’ and What Words Are Ours? ‘a bold, joyous poetry-cabaret’. She is currently developing Cassette Tape Radio, an experimental mixtape style podcast.
