Poetry House Live

The Cockpit Theatre - Gateforth Street, London NW8 8EH

Poetry House Live

Curated by the Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation
in partnership with GoodDog Theatre Company

An original, multimedia theatrical show, featuring short mini-plays written by seven of Europe’s most exciting young playwrights, celebrating the houses once occupied by famous poets, and exploring the stories that took place within their walls.

Enjoy an evening at Federico García Lorca's fantastical Madrid cabaret; witness the intoxicated antics of Rimbaud and Verlaine in London and the final moments of John Keats in Rome, as well as encountering Romanian surrealist Gellu Naum and the restless ghost of Lithuanian poet Salomeja Neris.

Integrating scenes from their recent collaboration with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, GoodDog Theatre combine physical theatre and film to transport you from Iceland to Rome, Paris to the Baltic, London to Bucharest. At the heart of this innovative theatrical show lies not only a shared European culture but also the poetry house and the many stories that it tells.

GoodDog Directors: Dylan Read and Olivia Rose.

Playwrights: Richard Dalla Rosa (France); Sigurbjörg Þrastardóttir (Iceland); Roberta Calendra (Italy); Gabrielė Labanauskaitė (Lithuania); Maria Manolescu Borsa (Romania); Luis Muñoz (Spain); and Adam Gordon (UK).
