Presenting poet and luminary, Louise Fazackerley, spoken word support for punk legend Dr. John Cooper Clarke. With work rooted in word-witchery and the working class, Louise explores the synergy between poetry and movement in a way that makes the ugly beautiful and the mundane fantastical. Winner of BBC Radio 3 New Voices, European Slam Finalist, Literature Champion for Moston and Harpurhey, Louise is excited to share her new genre-distorting, darkly humorous, dystopian book, ‘The Lolitas’.
