Live Literature
Tara Theatre residency
Work by John Agard & Grace Nichols

A one week residency at Tara Theatre in London featuring two works by Caribbean-British poets directed by Mark C. Hewitt. John Agard's one man show 'Roll Over Atlantic' received 4 Star reviews for a performance at the Royal Festival Hall / South Bank Centre as part of London Literature Festival 2016, and will sandwich performances of 'Dora vs Picasso' by Grace Nichols, an astonishing Flamenco production that wowed audiences at previews in 2015 with its heady combination of exhilarating acting, projected images, and live Flamenco music & dance. Both pieces of work were developed through Crosspath, an intercultural theatre and performing arts company set up in 2010 by John Agard & Grace Nichols.

Tongues&Grooves
Diving into the Wreck
Socially engaged production

First performance in East Sussex of Diving into the Wreck, a multi-media production in which individuals in recovery from addiction tell their own story in their own words, through film, audio and live performance. The work explores what’s lost and what’s salvaged in the journey of addiction, evoking its craziness, nastiness, predictable routines, dark humour and secret worlds. Originally commissioned by Tongues&Grooves, it was developed in Portsmouth by poet Maggie Sawkins and director Mark C. Hewitt. It is presented live by Kieran Judge, Daniel Scrivener, Jane Muir and Patrick Seery, with additional contributions on film from Steven. "A superb show. Heart-breaking and warm-hearted at the same time." (William Sutton)
