From the age of Gilgamesh until the present day, from the ‘land between two rivers' to the city beside the Thames - this recital of poems in English and Arabic by Jenny Lewis and Adnan al Sayegh, with oud accompaniment by Patricia de Mayo, explores themes of love, loss, exile, humour and hope from their forthcoming book, Singing for Inanna, published by Mulfran Press, September 2014 and was first performed at the British Museum in April 2014.
Jenny Lewis is a poet and playwright. She has had seven plays and poetry cycles staged at major UK theatres including After Gilgamesh (Mulfran Press, 2011) for Pegasus Theatre, Oxford. Her latest collection is Taking Mesopotamia (Oxford Poets/ Carcanet, March 2014.) She teaches poetry at Oxford University
Adnan al-Sayegh was born in al-Kufa, Iraq in 1955 and is one of the most original voices of his generation of poets. His poetry denounces the devastation of wars and the horrors of dictatorship. Adnan has published eleven collections of poetry, including the 550-page Uruk's Anthem, and since 2004 has been living in exile in London.
Patricia de Mayo is a multi-instrumentalist, dancer, singer and composer. She plays various instruments including the guitar and oud. As a professional flamenco dancer she has performed with the Flamenco company 'Alma Flamenco'.
