Words that we share: Performance as Poetry

Whitechapel Gallery, 77-82 Whitechapel High St, London E1 7QX

* Supported by Arts Council England

An afternoon of poetry readings by artists and writers whose work reveal the performativity of language, as part of Block Universe, London’s leading international performance art festival.

The playful relationship between experimental writing practices and performance is enacted as words are transposed across formats, from the page, through the digital and in live utterances. Current Whitechapel Gallery Writer in Residence Rachel Pimm is joined by writers Iphgenia Baal, Himali Singh Soin and Abbas Zahedi.
