A PERFORMANCE OF WORDS AND MUSIC

 

In partnership with Montreal-based producer Émilie Monnet, we present a performance of words and music born out of indigenous experiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Inuit poet and throat singer Taqralik Partridge performs with celebrated Cree cellist Cris Derksen. Tara Beagan, a Ntlakapamux author who has written about the Beothuk human remains at the National Museum of Scotland, and Shetlandic poet Roseanne Watt, read from their latest works. Join them for this unmissable performance. Supported by The Canada Council for the Arts.

Date: 16.8.2019

Time: 17:30-19:00

Venue: Writers' Retreat

Tickets: £12
