Saturday April 17        12:30-1:30

TROEON : TURNINGS: Philip Gross, Valerie Coffin Price, Cyril Jones

Film poems and live poetry readings in Welsh and English, artwork on screen.

Based on the new book: Troeon : Turnings is a creative conversation, in Welsh and English, between two renowned poets, Philip Gross and Cyril Jones interwoven with cover and text designs by fine artist Valerie Coffin Price. Various rivers run through this work: amongst them, in Gross’s case, the Taff and the Severn in south Wales, and in Jones’s the Arth and the Glasffrwd in west Wales. Authors and artist in discussion and we present both live reading, images and short films based on the work.

Free but ticketed.

£12.99

To turn, to dig, to plough, to upset, to translate… Bend, lap, journey, time... The Welsh word troeon unfolds meaning after meaning.

In TROEON : TURNINGS, two poets confident in their own traditions meet in the hinterland between translation and collaboration - Cyril Jones from the disciplines of Welsh cynghanedd, Philip Gross from the restless variety of English verse.

In the same spirit, Valerie Coffin Price plays an equal part with striking letterpress designs that surprise the language of both writers into new awareness of its possibilities.
