Poetry Double Bill - Danielle Alakija / Shaun Hill

  • Five Leaves Bookshop 14a Long Row W England, NG1 2DH United Kingdom (map)

Danielle Alakija’s One Hand on the Sky presents an interwoven world suddenly overcome with a wave of nationalism.  A mix of comedy, spoken word and general frustration at the state of current affairs, it details one girl’s navigation through deciding which of her nationalities to keep, as she has recently turned 21 and is being forced to give up two of her three passports. Includes shorts from a UN sponsored documentary on migration and diasporan identity.

Shaun Hill’s, The First Steps of Time-Travel is a sequence of powerful poems in which two gay men try to reach other as they repeatedly fail to manoeuvre the circumference of a black hole. Shaun Hill is a queer poet who uses performance to co-create with audiences sites of radical intimacy.
