Nemeses: Collaborative Poetry in Performance

Wednesday 6 November 2019, 5.30PM

Writers at York are delighted to host this very special event, bringing together some of the most radical and exciting poets in the UK for a set of collaborative performances.
This particular performance also celebrates the northern launch of SJ Fowler’s Nemeses: Selected Collaborations, Vol. 2 (Haverthorn Press, 2019), with SJ Fowler and Nathan Walker, Prudence Bussey-Chamberlain, Tom Jenks, Harry Man, Colin Herd.
As the publisher writes:
‘No poet-artist has ever explored the potentials of multidisciplinary collaboration as thoroughly as SJ Fowler and Nemeses is a landmark publication evidencing that exploration. The book brings together over 50 collaborations and collaborators, placing poems and prose alongside musical scores, diaries, sculptures, films, photographs, scripts and more. It explores not only the grand potential for collaboration as an innovative, generative, playful and profound practise, but also aims to expand what is possible when sharing the live upon the page.’
Free, no need to book. Come along to see new possibilities of poetry in performance and collaboration.

Location: Bowland Auditorium, Berrick Saul Building, University of York Campus West
