John Agard: Roll Over Atlantic
Wed 9 November 2016, 20:00 – 21:30 GMT
Join Caribbean-British poet, John Agard on a quirky re-visioning of the notorious New World Enterprise of Christopher Columbus.
One of Britain's foremost cross-cultural voices and winner of the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry, Agard is well-known for his enthralling performances. Here, he takes on the voices of Columbus, The Atlantic, and a chorus of politically-conscious mosquitoes in an entertaining voyage in verse.
Directed by Mark C. Hewitt, musical backing by Thomas Arnold, and produced by Crosspath Theatre in association with Tilt, this is a one-person show that mixes the tides of cabaret and calypso with mischievous satirical wit.
