You are invited to spend an evening of music and poetry with Catalan Poet Mireia Calafell, as she performs her stunning work ‘Varosha’ accompanied by musician Björt Rùnars. The pair started work together for a recital improvising on the cello music to accompany Mireia’s beautiful and intense poetry. These experiments continued and resulted in their project ‘Varosha’ where poetry and music are entwined in a recital-performance. The performance will be in Catalan with English translation available. The evening will begin with an introduction by Manchester City Poet Jova Bagioli Reyes.
