Join Caribbean-British poet John Agard in a quirky re-visioning of the notorious New World enterprise of Christopher Columbus. A voyage in verse, performed against an evocative soundscape of Atlantic murmurings, with Agard magnificently taking on the voices of Columbus, the Atlantic Ocean, a native shaman and The Might Mosquito. This is a one-person show that mixes the tides of cabaret and calypso with mischievous satirical wit. Agard takes his audience on a fantastical, fanatical historic voyage that still bears relevance to contemporary issues. Directed by award-winning live literature director, Mark C. Hewitt, with especially composed music by Thomas Arnold of Stomp's Lost and Found Orchestra, this is a one-man show like no other.
