The Enemies Project: Irish Poetry – Yes But Are We Enemies?

The Enemies Project: Irish Poetry – Yes But Are We Enemies? | the lucky star of hidden things | Scoop.it
The Enemies project presents a collaborative poetry project between Ireland and England featuring 6 of the most dynamic young poets in those nations . Following a country wide tour of Ireland, from Belfast to Galway, from Derry to Dublin, where the poets collaborated to read new works across the nation in the autumn of 2014, this event showcases the best of that work alongside screenings and a discussion.

Celebrating the great modern tradition of Irish experimental poetry alongside innovative collaborative practise, Yes but are we Enemies will be a unique evening of poetry.

Featuring Christodoulos Makris, Sam Riviere, Ailbhe Darcy, Patrick Coyle, Billy Ramsell, SJ Fowler and many other Irish Avant Gardists. Supported by The Irish Arts Council.
