Part of the City of Literature Programme
at Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2017
Winner of the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry, Caribbean- British poet John Agard performs a quirky reimagining of the notorious voyage of Christopher Columbus. Written in verse and performed against a background soundscape of Atlantic murmurings and mosquito symphonies, Agard’s satirical one-man show takes his audience on a fantastical, fanatical historic voyage into the birth of a new world that still bears relevance to contemporary issues.
“Agard is a mesmeric performer” Peter Forbes, Poet and Critic
Event runs: c. 2 hrs (including interval)
The City of Literature programme at Norfolk & Norwich Festival is presented in association with Writers’ Centre Norwich and UNESCO City of Literature.
