Mara Menzies at Africa Writes Festival


A rhythmic evening of poetry, dance and sound exploring names we inherit.

What does it mean to inherit the names given to us? Join us for an evening of exploration, movement and thought into how we embody the names we desire, defy the names that limit us and reclaim the names once lost to us.


This event takes place in the British Library Theatre and will be simultaneously live streamed on the British Library platform. Tickets may be booked either to attend in person, or to watch on our platform (online) either live or within 48 hours on catch up.  In person ticket bookers will also be sent a bonus link to the online event. Viewing links will be sent out shortly before the event.
