Boundless and Bare currently have a call out for spoken word artists to join our national spoken word tour this summer.

Boundless & Bare is a spoken word agency making steps to raising the profile of spoken word in Ireland through the promotion and representation of artists and events featuring poetry, comedy, storytelling, hip/hop and theatre.
The Sunshine Tantrum Tour is a tour that takes place during the month of July for spoken word artists. Directed by spoken word poet and Boundless & Bare co-founder Melissa Ridge, the tour is a platform for emerging artists to showcase their unique style of spoken word across the island of Ireland. The tour aims to promote the art of spoken word to new audiences and communities, and explore the performance styles of poetry in a non-traditional fashion with elements of theatre, hip-hop, comedy and storytelling.
