From the Lips to the Moon is a recurring performance night bringing together poets and musicians hosted by electronic music wizard and composer Pouya Ehsaei and performance maker, performer and writer of crazy texts Tara Fatehi.

Playing with the synergies of words, melodies, languages and beats, Pouya’s music and soundscape merges with Tara’s voice and words to tell non-stories in goosebumps and half-familiar languages.

Pouya and Tara invite other musicians and spoken word artists to join them on stage to create a unique experience for the ears and eyes alongside live improvised visuals by Two Digits Visuals.  

Get your own dragon on a From the Lips to the Moon T-Shirt.

Already praised for their graphic design, the event posters are illustrated by Hamid Bardaskan.

We're always hoping to expand our pool of artists so if you're a poet, spoken word artist, musician or DJ and would like to perform at these nights, come to our next show to feel the vibe and write to Tara to tell us about your work.
