What is Tales Vs. Tunes?
2 performers, 2 words, 2 weeks - 1 head to head battle
to decided it all. Tales Vs. Tunes is a competition
between musicians and spoken word artists to finally
determine which is superior - Music or spoken word!
In this context, spoken word covers prose, poetry and
comedy. Each performer gets the same 2 words and they
must create a brand new piece which use these words
in some capacity. Musicians and spoken word artists
are then paired off in a versus format in the live show,
with the winner being decided by public vote. The only
difference in format between our weekly version and
our tour version is that the winner of each individual
battle will not be revealed, only the score of #TeamTales
and #TeamTunes at the end of the night!
Performers can do anything they want with the words.
In the past, we've gone from the extremes of repeating
them over and over all the way down to alluding to them
but not even physically saying the exact words. The
aim is to use the words in as creative a way as possible
and win a point for your team! Most pieces average 3-5
minutes but only an upper time limit of 10 minutes applies.
We have seen 30 second long pieces win in the past so
longer is not necessarily better!
