A poetry and spoken word performance by Vanessa Kisuule and Pavlina Marvin
On the occasion of the British Council’s 80th anniversary celebrations in Greece and of the UK being the Country of Honour at Public Book Awards, the British Council in collaboration with Public Bookstores, have invited Vanessa Kisuule and Pavlina Marvin to join forces on Wednesday 30 October, at 19:00, in the Penrose Library of the British School at Athens. The multi awarded poet and performer from Bristol and one of the most intriguing next generation voices in Athens, will explore their private and public visions of 80 years ago and 80 years from now and perform poetically, through spoken word a sample of their existing work. What does a woman poet-performer see in Greece, the UK, and the world, 80 years ago from today? And what findings can a poetic archaeology of the future reveal about life, nature, and culture 80 years from now? The two poets will create a performative piece on this theme, enriched and informed by their in situ meeting in Athens.
The event will be moderated by poet, editor and critic, Panayotis Ioannidis.
