Commenting on the same Babil Khan, Actor & Filmmaker said, “With Kommune and Spoken Fest, I have been graced with a chance to express with sincere freedom, to truthfully express without the pressure of being ‘good’. It is rare to find a platform supportive of letting your art speak for what it is without the crucification of good and bad or right and wrong. I want to explore my journey of belonging somewhere outside what is deemed ‘normal’ and finding my way to feeling like I belong at all. It is my journey of how I managed to feel I fit in this world”.

“I am nervous and excited to be part of the spoken fest. Nervous because spoken doesn’t expect you to be only entertaining but also honest and hopefully vulnerable. I hope I live up to the challenge”, said Sumukhi Suresh, Stand up Comedian & writer.

“Getting to perform at Spoken is such an amazing opportunity because it presents me with a chance to talk about things that I almost never do on a daily basis. Even though I’ve been in the content creation game for years, I’ve rarely exposed my deepest feelings to others through any of my work. I’m not only excited to be doing that in front of the wonderful audience at Spoken, but I’m also looking forward to the process of preparing my piece, and hopefully getting to know myself a little better along the way”, said Shayan Roy, YouTube sensation & Content creator.

Roshan Abbas, Co-Founder, Kommune said, “Spoken Fest is back with its physical format after a year.
