Recordings from an evening of poetry with six contemporary writers: Paige Murphy, Cassandra Troyan, Aisha Mirza, Mercedes Eng, Irene Silt and Maya Martinez. Each poet’s work directly resists the carceral state, boldly imagining new ways of relation, self-organisation and – through refusal – spaces for hope and possibility. Disinterested in respectability and self-censorship, the readings in this event embrace experimental irreverence: sometimes playfully erotic, sometimes taut with tension, each concerned with power and pleasure.
