This is the inaugural addition of HereSay, a new show by ICRT featuring spoken word performances from right here in Taiwan.

This edition of the show has been released online as a trial run, so we can get feedback from YOU! So give it a listen, and let us know what you think. You can leave a comment here, or send an email to Keith Menconi at keith [at] icrt [dot] com.

You can learn more about the program at the show page here.

This episode

We are featuring performances from the Taipei Story Slam event in March.

During the event storytellers were asked to prepare a 7-minute story based on the night’s theme: coming home. All of the storytellers were told their story had to be true, it had to be from personal experience, and had to be told from memory, so no scripts allowed.

Visit Taipei Story Slam’s Facebook page to learn more about the group.

Have your performance featured:

ICRT is looking to partner with spoken word performance groups in Taiwan with consistently high quality performances. We’re mostly focusing on English language performances, but we’d consider performances in Mandarin as well.

If you would like your group’s performance featured on the show, please email Keith Menconi at the email address provided above.
