After dazzling our digital screens in 2020, Kapow! Poetry comets will collide on the Toronto stage when Michael Pedersen (Scotland), Hollie McNish (UK), Omar Musa (Australia), Dominic Hoey (New Zealand) and special guest Irvine Welsh (Scotland) take the stage for a genre-bending spectacular performance. All leading creative figures in their respective countries, the collective clan boasts numerous prizes, endless performance accolades, a heft of rave-reviewed books and millions of online views. This performance of readings, conversations, hip-hop and more will deliver a ripe and raucous feast of language and landscape, as vividly rousing as it is feather-ruffling.
