Winner of the Ted Hughes Prize for innovation in poetry.
Kate Tempest is one of the most exciting and innovative performers to have emerged in spoken-word poetry in many years; her dramatic poem "Brand New Ancients" won the prestigious Ted Hughes Prize for innovation in poetry. Tempest's wholly unique blend of street poetry, rap, and storytelling - combined with the spellbinding delivery of an open-air revivalist - has won her legions of followers all over the UK. Her remarkable stage presence is wholly audible in this poem, a spoken story written to be told with live music.
"Brand New Ancients" is the tale of two families and their intertwining lives, set against the background of the city and braided with classical myth. Here, Tempest shows how the old myths still live on in our everyday acts of violence, bravery, sacrifice and love - and that our lives make tales no less dramatic and powerful than those of the old gods .

Kate Tempest definetely knows how to play with words, but there's so much more...the music supports the impression of myth, love, danger and marks every turning point. The story is amazing, so epic and still so natural and true. Brand New Ancients, breathtaking from the first to the last second.

Kate Tempest ist genial. Bei all ihren Geschichten vermittelt sie ein extremes Gefühl der Situation, die sie schildert. Egal ob durch die Stimme, oder Begleitmusik.
