Literary Live Art: Performing Place

This event has already taken place.

Thursday 22 June 2017

Take a journey via the readings of storywriters at this Emerging Writers Festival event.

Explore how writers ensnare their audience and embed their reader within the worlds they create. 

This event draws together artists working across diverse genres and themes. It plays with the form of the traditional reading by inviting the audience to curate their own pathway through a series of concurrent literary performances.

Real and imagined, contemporary and historic, near and far – choose your own adventure, and explore how you can be transported by the writing and performances of different artists.

Through this process, discover how writers locate their reader in places, environments and contexts, and how this affects a reader’s commitment to the work.
