Word N Sound is disappointed to inform you that Mutle Mothibe’s trip to NY to perform at the Apollo Theatre has been cancelled. We were informed by the Urban Word organisation this morning that “all performance slots have been closed” which is in contrast to the invitation letter they had sent to Mutle. Although surprised by the organisation’s decision, we have accepted the outcome and currently looking into other opportunities to get a South African spoken word into the US.
As Word N Sound we will continue in our efforts to form partnerships with Spoken word organisations globally in the effort to create performance and growth opportunities for South African Poets and Spoken word artists.
We are grateful to all who have offered support to make this trip happen and apologise for any inconvenience and any loss of joy that might have been caused by the cancellation of the trip.
