PCQ Arts is holding a multilingual performance to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, in partnership with the Barbican Theatre and Redcliffe Films.
On 28th June 1914, a chain of events was unleashed leading to the outbreak of WWI. On 28th June 2014, PCQ Arts, in partnership with Redcliffe Films and Barbican Theatre, is holding a multilingual poetry recital and exclusive screening of the film Severn and Somme.
Plymouth’s poet laureate, Michael Sullivan, will read a new piece, accompanied by German poet Marieluise Niehaus, city councillor Chaz Singh and young performers from the Barbican Theatre reading Indian, Spanish, French and Italian poetry in the original and in translation and featuring Music from Tim Sayer.
Filmmaker Diana Taylor will introduce Severn and Somme, a moving exploration of poet Ivor Gurney’s relationship with the river of his youth and the river of his war.
