A trio of world-class poets will take the stage at the 10th annual Poetry Prom.
A trio of world-class poets will take the stage at the 10th annual Poetry Prom on Thursday, 23rd August at 7.30pm in the historic Snape Maltings Concert Hall in Suffolk.
Organised by the The Poetry Trust in partnership with Aldeburgh Music, this year's Prom will feature Imtiaz Dharker, Paul Durcan and Marie Howe – three immediately accessible and unforgettable performers from Asia, Ireland and America.
Imtiaz Dharker describes herself as a ‘Scottish Pakistani Muslim Calvinist’ and with a lifelong experience of cultural displacement, she investigates with warmth and candour what it means to belong. One of Ireland's most distinctive voices and a riveting live performer, Paul Durcan's heartbreaking and hilarious narratives include elegies for friends, political protests, and praise poems for everyday heroes. America’s Marie Howe writes beautifully truthful poems – about childhood abuse, her brother’s death from AIDS, 21st century materialism, friendship and late motherhood – to make the best sense of her life.
