Inua Ellams

Poems from The Gold Caravan

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The award-winning poet and performer will read poems he wrote after meetings with Bankside residents and builders working on the Tate Modern development.

The performances, commissioned by MERGE, will take place in a tiny, vintage, gold-painted caravan, possibly the smallest mobile performance space in London.

Ellams's style is influenced by classic literature and hip-hop, as much by Keats as by MosDef. Rooted in a love for rhythm and language, he crosses 18th century romanticism and traditional story telling with contemporary diction, loose rhythm and rhyme.
