Roll Over Atlantic ☆☆☆☆
by John Agard

Hewitt for intercultural performing arts company Crosspath, continues its tour with two dates at Bloomsbury Theatre hosted by diverse spoken word promoter, Tilt. The production revisits Christopher Columbus and his infamous discovery of the New World in a mischievous voyage in verse (with songs) that mixes the tides of cabaret and calypso.

LLL Productions
Body of Writing
Installation (text and photography)

Body of Writing was a recent installation developed for the cloisters of Salisbury Cathedral which featured the writings of prisoners from HMP Erlestoke in Wiltshire. The project was developed in partnership with Salisbury Cathedral's Learning & Outreach Team, with the texts developed at creative writing workshops led by David Kendall and Mark C. Hewitt. The aim was to focus on creating short, punchy texts that could sit alongside images of prisoners' tattoos by Lewes photographer Willie Robb. The two panelled towers created for the installation were designed and constructed for LLL by exhibition company, Standard 8.
