    Playing with ANATOMY.

    Anerki is a monthly event of underground artistic expression: Music, Spoken Word, Rap, Visual and Digital Live Art, Dance, Comedy, Film and Free Speech. Always free of charge, it is entertaining, educational and conscious.

    It aims to break down age and cultural barriers in society and to bring about inspirational change through the arts. Occurring as it does in Leicester, a plethora of nationalities and languages are represented.

    Anerki places no restrictions on what a performer might do; boundaries between disciplines need not be observed. It is a format where new, experimental ideas can be presented to an energetic, multi-cultural audience without fear of 'failure'. It harbours a very nurturing environment, which is vital in allowing the greatest art to be expressed.
