Poet, dramatist, performer and designer, Inua Ellams is one of the most sought-after performing artists in the United Kingdom for his varied body of work. He is a member of the UK’s Royal Society of Literature and an ambassador of the Ministry of Stories organization, which promotes the potential of young writers aged between 8 and 18. Author of several poetry books, including The Half-God of Rainfall, he won a Fringe First award at the Edinburgh International Festival for his first play, The 14th Tale. Ellams also wrote the acclaimed play Barber Shop Chronicles. As well as his prolific graphic and literary production, he founded the Midnight Run, urban walks taken between nightfall and dawn, and the R.A.P. Parties, which combine the poetry slam format with urban music performance. On this occasion, Ellams will read poetry according to a selection of words that the audience will send us.
