Lucid Lovers was written and narrated by London based Spoken Word artist Potent Whisper.
The project is presented in a unique ‘Musical Audio-Book’ format. This is an audio-book which
is narrated in rhyme, featuring a full cast and original soundtrack by 3ss3nce and Antonio Lewis
Featured within the audio-book is a full length ‘Rhyming Guide to Lucid Dreaming’
which serves as a comprehensive introduction to lucid dreaming and teaches the listener how
to do it. (Lucid dreaming is when you wake up inside a dream and realise that you’re dreaming!)
Potent Whisper is a London based author and Spoken Word artist reputed for using rhyme to
dismantle and respond to key socio-political issues. His debut collection ‘The Rhyming Guide
to Grenfell Britain’ (2018) received widespread television/ press coverage and was twice
referenced in Parliament.
Lucid Lovers stars the voices of Mustafa Khogali (Samer), Hind Swareldahab (Ahlam) both of whom were involved in some capacity with the uprising in Sudan and have lived experiences of navigating the British asylum system.
As part of the project, funded by the Arts Council, Potent Whisper will be delivering ‘Poetry, Lucid
Dreaming and Freedom of Movement’ workshops for people who are not able to move as freely
as they wish. The workshops will be delivered online, in partnership with various groups including
YMCA and Disabled People against Cuts (DPAC).
