MCMC Spoken AKA Megan Chapman is a critically acclaimed performance word artist Inspired by the rap music of Eminem and using the media of poetry, rap, freestyle and spoken word, MCMC spoken uses her diverse skills and interests to communicate views and visions of the world both as she sees it and through the eyes of others. She writes to connect herself to people and them to each other, giving the unheard a collective voice to be shouted out on stage.
A Creative Writing degree course at University gave her the space and time to develop her writing and the opportunity to experiment with performance. Whilst at University she wrote and recorded works in Europe, became part of a hip hop band and experimented with sound recording, never afraid to cross boundaries and make work that defied labels of rap, hip hop, spoken word or poetry and instead choosing to dispel the limitations and continue to be an artist of words who liked to perform.
Since leaving University MCMC Spoken has gone from strength to strength, carving out her reputation as a poet, working with local producers and rappers to make hip hop tracks, hone her freestyling skills and perform at spoken word gigs both locally and across the UK and Europe.
Anna Murphy of Kneehigh Theatre writes, “Megan Chapman’s poetry is heartfelt and rhythmic. Playful and political, her Art is in the right place.”
A passion for youth work and facilitating learning through sharing her practice with others. MCMC Spoken is committed to delivering workshops around the UK to young people, allowing them to explore ideas and issues through creative processes, again giving a voice to the unheard.
Catch her if you can and let her rhyme, rhythm and delivery leave you breathless and thinking anew!
