Details

The epicentre of Harlem Renaissance, Langston Hughes' rhythmic, urgent poetry empowered a generation of new writers, with an aftershock that still reverberates today. His work was full of music and dance, and described the Black American experience over decades. Characterised by narratives of empowerment and a belief in humanity, he celebrated Black identity in a unique and powerful way. Exploring Hughes' life and artistic potency, Poet in the City joins forces with electric and progressive dance company East London Dance, and the exhilarating brass and wood wind ensemble Kinetika Bloco to remember this remarkable voice through music, dance and poetry, creating a celebration worthy of a cultural king. Poetry will be performed by Paapa Essiedu, a British actor known for his work in theatre, film and television.
