Amiri Baraka: Performance

Courtsey Celeste Bateman & Associates, LLC

The start of 2014 saw the death of Amiri Baraka, one of the most influential, controversial and galvanising cultural figures of the twentieth century. As poet, novelist, playwright, music critic, editor, and cultural organiser, Baraka extended the possibilities of modern writing.

Following a day long symposium assessing the scope of nearly 65 years of work, considering the importance, paradoxes and potentialities of Baraka’s career across a range of disciplines, this evening performance commemorates the late poet’s life and work, with readings by poets including:

Linton Kwesi Johnson
Kayo Chingonyi
Sean Bonney
Michael Zand
Melanie Abrahams
Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze
Yvette Heyliger
