Tuesday 24 September
School of English, University of Leeds, LS2 9JT
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear from one of Singapore’s leading writers – Madeleine Lee.
Current Writer-in-Residence at the National Gallery of Singapore, Lee’s work often explores the fraught relationship between nature and man. Her nine volumes of poetry include square root of time.
Due to unforseen circumstances this event has been cancelled. Apologies for any disappointment caused.
Dancing With Words
Kala Sangam, Bradford, BD1 4TY
Pay What You Decide
An exploration of the relationship between two art forms, Dancing with Words is the culmination of a project that has seen dancers and poets collaborating to push boundaries and take new, exciting approaches to creating work.
The pairs have worked together to incorporate movement and words – with the artists inspiring and being inspired by each other simultaneously to create a trilogy of entirely new performances.
Funded by Arts Council England and produced by Books Up North in partnership with Kala Sangam.
