A celebration of our unlikely existence and how history can bring us all together, in the form of an interdisciplinary piece combining poetry, music and more.
Former UK poetry slam champion Adam Kammerling is joined by a hyper-dynamic cohort of incredible artists to examine intergenerational trauma and the rituals we make for connection.
One such annual custom is the Seder, which marks the beginning of Passover. Seder is also the name of Adam’s debut poetry collection, a 2020 National Jewish Book Award finalist, a deft account of his reckoning with heritage and family history. Developed from what Ilya Kaminsky calls ‘a beautiful, lyrical collection’, this show is a unique exploration of togetherness, both ancient and fiercely contemporary, lifting the lid off a religious practice to discover how it might encompass global stories of human survival.
Adam Kammerling is an award winning poet, interdisciplinary artist and educator.
His most recent works include Seder, his debut poetry collection which was a finalist in the National Jewish Book Awards, Shall We Take This Outside, a three-person spoken-word/dance theatre piece that toured nationally, and Inside!, a piece of poetry/rave theatre commissioned by Centrepoint and the Saatchi Gallery.
He has written poetry commissions for the BBC, The Orwell Prize and Nationwide, and theatre commissions for Upswing Circus, Raise Dark, and Slide Dance.
A highly experienced educator, he has created poetry based theatre with emerging poets, musicians and circus practitioners at the Roundhouse, The Albany and Pentonville Prison. He is the creative producer of The Nest, an arts education program for young people at the Fostering Network.
