Hot like fireChildren will be thrilled by this exuberant and interactive poetry performance by Valerie Bloom. Valerie is an outstanding performer who delights in being on stage. You will find yourself at the market, bargaining Jamaican-style for groceries, or balancing an imaginary tray on your head and swaying as you sing the cake seller’s song.

Think ripe bananas and fresh callaloo, jerk chicken and rice an’ peas. This performance bursts with fun and flavour!
