Hear voices from around the world, distilled into poetry in this unique performance. Midland Creative Projects take the words of the world’s poets and presents them on stage with live music to create a celebration of our lives in all their forms.
Drawing from every continent we are given stories that move and inspire – from Sweden to Chile and all points between. The drama of love, loss and re-birth mingle with the comedy of daily life, resulting in a captivating series of portraits presented through the words of some of the world’s best poets.
Directed by Steve Byrne from Interplay Theatre, Beyond the Water’s Edge uses poems published by Bloodaxe Books with original music composed by the company and set design by Talking Birds.
