A girl glides down Galaxy Walk to her grandmother’s home. The impact of patriarchy is unravelled. The unforgivable negligence of Grenfell and unsafe housing in Britain is exposed. In these poems that are at once raw and vulnerable, Shareefa explores hauntings of love, loss, and history as a working-class Indian woman raised in the diaspora. With a voice fortified and perceptive, these writings navigate the blunt cruelties of our existence, whilst refusing to forget how to marvel at the wonders on earth. Galaxy Walk restores our faith in what it means to be alive and human.
Shareefa Energy will be performing alongside a musician for her debut poetry collection launch. Amrit Kaur Lohia and special guests will be performing.
The show will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
Tuesday 5th November
