POETRY PARNASSUS POSTSCRIPT
After last year’s phenomenal Poetry Parnassus festival at Southbank Centre – the biggest ever gathering of world poets – what is left for verse to voice?
Plenty say these poets, as they experiment with sound and form, as well as confronting some of the most vexing political questions of the age.
Whether working with music, melding language into new shapes or highlighting personal, national and international issues, these poets share the same spirit of adventure.
Come and listen to some of the most innovative international voices of today.
Poets include Dean Atta (UK), Rocío Cerón (Mexico), Christodoulos Makris (Cyprus), Avaes Mohammad (UK) and Rafeef Ziadah (Palestine/UK).
In association with Speaking Volumes Live Literature Productions
