Zena Edwards

Wordlife and The Folk Forest team up with Museums Sheffield to curate an interactive promenade performance event in the Graves Gallery.

Featuring poets and musicians strongly in the protest and activist tradition, this ‘festival within a gallery’ will bring alive the current exhibition on the theme of Dissent.

Including:

THREE ACRES AND A COW
Covering a thousand years of people’s history and protest in folk song and story, this show will feature highlights and specially curated histories and associated song from this performers’ coop of musicians, poets and storytellers.

ZENA EDWARDS 
Zena Edwards has become known as one the most unique voices of performance poetry to come out of the contemporary spoken word scene. She was nominated for the Arts Foundation Award for Performance Poetry 2007 and won the Hidden Creatives Award 2012 and has toured the world performing her work. 

"Zena Edwards is a superb performer" Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

ALABASTER DEPLUME

Alabaster Deplume is an acclaimed poet and musician who effortlessly steps between the two mediums, combining his unique writing style with a keen sense of musicality. Performing with a four-piece jazz band, Alabaster's work has garnered a huge following online and in person. He is a resident artist at the Total Refreshment Centre in London and frequents festivals such as Shambala and music and poetry nights across the UK. 

“Totally unique… Very, very brilliant indeed” – Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3

NEIGHBOURHOOD VOICES CHOIR

Celebrating the creativity and talent of women in this new kind of choir in Sheffield.

MATT MCATEER
Matt McAteer has been stumbling around the periphery of the Sheffield poetry scene for the past decade. He has taken precious shows such as S41, No Lead, No Copper, AllGone and Technocorrections to The Edinburgh Fringe, Greater Manchester Fringe and Sheffield Poetry festivals. His latest poems, which he is performing under the title 20th Century Debris, explore the apparent contradiction between an ever-rising retirement age and the end to employment signalled by an encroaching era of automation.

SPEAKERS CORNER
With activists from Sheffield Tree Action Group (STAG), Foodhall and other local organisations. They’ll be talking about recent experiences and plans for the future! Find out more and talk to them on the night.

ARCHIVE FOOTAGE SCREENING - PROTEST
We’ve collated footage from protests across Sheffield over the years and will be screening it throughout the evening. A chance to see some of the scene that shaped the Sheffield we know and love today!
