John Agard: Roll Over Atlantic
Monday 15 May 8pm
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
