Uncut is the open mic of Trill. This edition ‘Unframing Ourselves’ in Studio Manhattan, curated TRILL, is a free podium for music, slam and spoken word.

Do you write, rhyme or make music but you've never been on stage? You fell like it's the right time? Uncut is the place where you can let your voice be heard!

The icebreakers are a couple of invited artists that lead the way. Expect these headliners: Majé, tha rainx, and Amrita Khan. After them, the stage is yours. Bring what you feel. You don't have to stick to one theme. We end the night with a dj set by Affair.

Uncut stands for mutual respect, safer space and braver space. Art and stories are shared in an open minded atmosphere.

Subscriptions on the spot.
