Award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams (Barber Shop Chronicles, The Half-God of Rainfall) brings a special, audience-led poetry event to OP via Zoom.

Pick a word, any word. Prompted by audience suggestions, Ellams will search through his extensive archive of work and perform a reactive and spontaneous selection.

Across his work, Inua mixes the old with the new: traditional African storytelling with contemporary poetry, pencil with pixel, texture with vector images, with an emphasis on themes of identity, displacement and destiny. His Barber Shop Chronicles has played two sell-out runs at the National Theatre and a world tour, visiting OP in 2019.

Followed by a Q&A
