Nova presents…Camarade!

The groundbreaking series, Camarade, will hit Nova this July. A very special event has been planned for Nova’s spoken word programme where 12 pairs of Europe’s most vital poets will perform original collaborations written in partnership and specifically for Nova.

Poetry lends itself to collaboration, where meaning is infinite, universal and personal. The Camarade series, conceived by poet and editor SJ Fowler who has also organised the event along with Natasha Plowright, seeks to celebrate collaboration within poetry by presenting poets in pairs to show what might be produced when two equally avid poets work in unison.

The poems will be performed as distinctive ‘duets’ and the rich landscape of European history is set to be explored through the diverse subjects, styles and creative innovation. We can’t wait to hear what these talented pairings will create!

Poets include:

Joe Dunthorne & Sam Riviere

Simon Barraclough & Isobel Dixon

Tom Jenks & Philip Terry

Emma Bennett & Holly Pester

Andy Spragg & David Berridge

Jeff Hilson & Robert Shepherd

Maria Ferencuhova & Frances Kruk

Tim Atkins & Harry Gilonis

Jonty Tiplady & Richard Barrett

Georges Szirtes & Carol Watts

Roddy Lumsden & Carrie Etter
