Poetry Beyond Print: Scarlett Sabet in conversation with Jimmy Page
Mon 9 March @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm£20
Hailed by Hunger Magazine as “one of the brightest new stars on the international poetry scene”, poet and performer Scarlett Sabet has built a reputation for her beautiful prose and emotive readings.
Inspired by the Beat poets, Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath, her work including four collections – Camille (2019), Zoreh (2018), The Lock and the Key (2016) and Rocking Underground (2014) – explores themes of women and friendship, loss and childhood, and the politics of isolation and despair.
Joining us for a London Book & Screen Week special, Scarlett will be in conversation with legendary musician Jimmy Page to discuss their latest project, Catalyst, a radical sonic re-interpretation of selected pieces of Scarlett’s work, released digitally and on special edition vinyl last year.
Alongside a reading by Scarlett, the the two will discuss the creative process behind the album, the relationship between word, sound and format, and whether the potential of poetry lies beyond the printed page. A unique opportunity to hear from both rock royalty and one of contemporary poetry’s brightest stars.
Ticket price includes a complimentary drink and signed copy of Scarlett’s latest collection, Camille.
