ILF 2021 Poet in Residence Ian Duhig premieres Rosa Alba, Rosa Mundi (‘Yorkshire Rose, Rose of the World’), a commission for Ilkley Literature Festival. The performance of poetry, prose and song explores the motif of the rose – an image of loveliness and enfolding complexity.
Duhig is joined by Satnam Galsian, a classically-trained musician and singer of Punjabi heritage whose fusions of Eastern and Western styles and folk traditions are central to Duhig’s musical consideration of the 2021 festival’s themes of identity, unreliable narratives and lies. This is a work of love and, Duhig hopes, pleasure and beauty.
