Talia Randall makes and curates riotous cabaret, bold poetry and joyous theatre. Often acting the chaotic clown on stage, once you scratch the surface you’ll find work that is political, personal and provocative.
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.
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, Talia 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’.
Talia’s current shows include What Words Are Ours? a BSL interpreted joyous poetry-cabaret showcasing D/deaf and hearing artists.
Talia’s previous producer was powerhouse babe Molly Nicholson. More recently, Talia’s shows and projects have been produced by the multi-talented Emilie Labourey.
