Upstairs at The Western, Leicester
Saturday 16th September, 7.30
Nine Arches Press presents a poetry show double bill, complete with live music and much more…
Poet Jacqueline Saphra and musician Benjamin Tassie present All My Mad Mothers,
a show about mothers and daughters, discoveries and coming of age.
Witty, vivacious and sharply-observed, the poetry performance is
perfectly matched with Tassie’s specially-composed live music score.
Angela France’s The Hill is a poetry, sound and
vision show that traces natural and radical pathways up Leckhampton
Hill. We meet the rioters who stood up for their right to ramble, and
ask questions that are just as relevant today. Who owns the land, and
who has the right to roam?
Nine Arches Press will at the theatre all evening and will have copies Jacqueline Saphra’s and Angela France’s latest books.
The next three performances of ‘The Hill’ are close together, so here they are all at once.
