Alexi Papadopoulos

Yia yia’s Kitchen

Recorded Spoken Word Poem, 2022

Alexi is a Greek/Irish actor/improviser/poet born and raised in exotic Wigan. Discovering his love of spoken word during his time at ALRA North, he has since featured in Bamalam Production’s Poetry Week, and been published by Actors of Dionysus with his subtly titled poem “I’m Going To Bite Your (Pegasus’) Ass.” Currently he is working on “The Play What I Wrote” at the Birmingham Rep. He writes deeply personal poems exploring his relationship with his family, his culture and his personal identity. So, y’know, pretty standard poetry stuff.


Alexi Papadopoulos approaches the stories of meal preparation as sites that connect him to his cultural identity.
