Apples & Snakes presents Beyond Words: New Poetry From South Africa Live On Tour

Four incredible South African poets tour the UK together for the first time. Brought together by South African Poet Laureate and renowned exile campaigner Keorapetse Kgositsile, the show premieres specially commissioned new work. This is a blistering introduction to the new South Africa and to the power of live poetry in performance.

Featuring some of the most exciting voices of South Africa in the 21st century - Keorapetse Kgositsile, Lebo Mashile, Don Mattera and Phillippa Yaa de Villiers.

Keorapetse Kgositsile said: "I think an exchange of literature among peoples has better chances of building understanding and friendship than any diplomatic missions could ever achieve."
