Yes But Are We Enemies: English and Irish Poets Having Words
UCC researchers and students participate in poetry collaboration
Tue 23 September, 8pm: Triskel Arts Centre, Cork. (TDC space on ground floor)
A groundbreaking exploration of contemporary writing in which 6 poets from Ireland and England tour brand new work produced collaboratively in cross-national partnerships. The tour visits five venues across Ireland and concludes with a show in London, with each event featuring a unique combination of pairs.
This is a project about the creation of collaborative work, but also about the integration of differing poetic communities. Therefore each event will additionally feature specially-commissioned collaborations between poets from the region.
Featured poets in Cork are:
Christodoulos Makris & Sam Riviere
Billy Ramsell & Patrick Coyle
Ailbhe Darcy & SJ Fowler
Sarah Hayden & Rachel Warriner
Doireann Ní Ghríofa & Cal Doyle
Paul Casey & Afric McGlinchey
Eleanor Hooker & Sarah Hesketh
The project acknowledges generous funding support from The Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and The Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
