The Love, Sweat and Laughter live event is a regular unmatched undertaking by a collective of international artists aiming to bring together different forms of art like poetry, story telling, rap poetry, dance, comedy, spoken word and music on the same stage in a witty and joyful atmosphere. After its unparallel sucess in less than a year, other events celebrating roots, diversity, inclusion, transformation, growth, (r)evolution and human beauty ensued, such as: Babylon: The Event of Many Tongues and Cultures, The Fellowship of Soul: Soul meets Art, Love and Politics, SpeakEasy: The Event of Prohibited Awesomenes, Inception: Worlds Within Worlds, The Big Berlin: Best of Berlin’s Artists and Arts. The All I Want- The Coolest Night of Arts is a yearly event which transcribes words and their purport into real actions and facts. Beyond words and performances we managed to assure a water pump for 250 families in a disadvantage village, vaccines, emergency kits, study materials, food, micronutrients, water and other aids to children and their families in need. Join us in this beautiful cause. Our artistic events are presented via our Facebook page under:Events or at the following link Cultural/Artistic Events.

Publishing Services

Verba volant, scripta manent. Continue reading

In an ongoing digitalized and uniform society, the demand for singular, unique releases in printed form has increased, combined with a lack of professionalism in offering quality services to this regard. Under Soul and the City’s umbrella, we offer a complete array of bespoke services from consultancy, pre-editing, editing, cover design, layout structuring, post-editing, production, up to the post-production stage, like advertising, marketing and communication via social media channels. From the foundation to the top, we tailor our services to the needs of those wordsmiths who take their passion seriously and want to make a permanent, indelible difference. One of our core projects of such amplitude is our “Worldwide Anthology” – A Curated Selection of Poetry and Spoken Word, encompassing 30 countries and 6 continents, 40 diversities, 135.000 characters and 22.500 feelings (i.e. words), all gathered in an unparalleled result of hard work and professionalism.

The SaC Masterclass Series

One blank page at a time Continue reading

Our SaC Masterclass Series are meant for artists, art enthusiasts, academic students, scholars and professionals willing to develop and grow in various fields like creative writing, dancing, instrument learning, language tutoring, meditation or individual coaching. We have the professional skills to offer tutoring, coaching or a combination of both strategies to individuals, small groups or institutions. Coaching is the ability to work on efficient strategies in order to overcome blockages and barriers and to gain the right confidence in one’s inner voice and the expression thereof.

The SaC Masterclass on Creative Writing
Creative writing is the best channel to stimulate, hone and enhance dormant intrinsic skills towards self-determination, positive choices and self-empowerment. Guided by trained artists with international presence, the creative writing masterclasses are led online or in stimulating indoor/outdoor environments, and focus on writing and performance techniques and approaches in a pleasant and interactive manner. The participants will learn how to find or develop their own voice and enable thought-provoking pieces of writing. They will finally have a chance to perform their own pieces to one of our live or online events alongside established performers, such as published poets and acclaimed storytellers.

Commissions

This is how we do it! Continue reading

The versatility of a language in its artistic expression (whether in the shape of poems, spoken word or theatrical performances) renders it suitable for any public or occasion. The intricacies of wit, humour, sadness, horror, love carried by the performed piece wrap the message and its intent in a unique manifestation with an entertaining perspective. We’ve been commissioned to do work for publishing houses, journals, private entities and weddings.

If you are interested in commissioning a written piece, performance, or video please contact us at: info@soaring-words.com for more information to this regard.

Performances to private or corporate events

Business and pleasure. Continue reading

Although it would sound atypical to relate corporate events to art and its modern manifests, the combination of the two has been acclaimed and welcomed in the past years to various festivals, summits, conferences and other undertakings alike. We’ve performed at or opened for entities like BPW Bregenz (Austria), BPW Stuttgart (Germany) and Business Networking in Münich (Germany) among others. We are happy to offer bespoke performances of spoken word, poetry, story-telling, story poetry, video screenings and other related artistic formats for your specific occasions.
