Jessy James LaFleur, a nomad with conviction,
Spoken Word artist, rapper, activist, workshop host and entrepreneur who’s taken a million and one paths around the world over the last 18 years.
Aachen born, East-Belgium raised, she has brought her music and poetry to the stage in more than 30 countries and in 3 different languages (German, French, and English).
Dubbing herself a ‘Street Poet’, she travels with 'Constantine' and 'Theodore' – her two suitcases – from one city to another spreading the beauty of poetry...

Jessy can not only be seen on stage, she also offers various services individually tailored to your needs and she is involved in all sorts of different projects.
Always in the name of poetry and with a heart full of love.

ANGEPRANGERT! SPOKEN WORD was officially founded in Celle (Lower Saxony / Germany) in 2015 and has grown from a local youth project into an internationally recognised initiative in recent years.
The project was awarded a business Start-up grant by the Free State of Saxony in 2019 and is part of the founder-laboratory "AHOJ" in Görlitz.
At 'AHOJ', the team of ANGEPRANGERT! SPOKEN WORD is given the opportunity to work on a brand new workshop-concept, that combines the values of 'Street Poetry', 'Creative Writing' & 'Performance' and turns the different elements of each genre into one magical coaching-experience, that takes a more integrated approach towards 'Spoken Word' & 'Slam Poetry'.
