Moments of Radical Joy: Cecilia Knapp and Simone Seales

Saturday 27 April, 2024

Join us for an hour of music and poetry with Glasgow-based intersectional cellist Simone Seales alongside former Young Person’s Laureate Cecilia Knapp. Simone is a classically trained musician who is interested in how we experience emotions in different ways, and who uses their musical talent to find moments of radical joy through an improvised intertwining of music and poetry. Cecilia was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for best single poem in 2022, and her recent books, Peach Pig and Little Boxes, both consider themes of grief, sacrifice, and navigating a difficult world whilst looking for hope and possibility.
In response to the festival theme – Imagine Something Different – these multi-talented artists have worked together to create a brand new collaborative performance, and in this event they will read, play and perform their work before having a conversation about it with TV and radio presenter, Gemma Cairney.
