Manchester Multilingual City Poets

Manchester Multilingual City Poets

See Manchester’s first Multilingual City Poets perform work inspired by protest, resistance, identity and home in English, Spanish, Urdu and Arabic. Jova Bagioli Reyes is a queer, neurodiverse immigrant hailing from Colombia and Chile. Their poetry and music are heavily inspired by the long struggle of Abya Yala (so-called Latin America). Anjum Malik is an established scriptwriter, poet and performer who has written several acclaimed plays for BBCITV and theatre. Ali Al-Jamri is a Bahraini British poet, editor and producer. He edited ArabLit Quarterly: FOLK and Between Two Islands: Poetry by Bahrainis in Britain.

From the pro-democracy and anti-poverty protesters of Peterloo to a long history of protests against the elite in Colombia to the student protests which became a general strike in Piñera’s Chile, Manchester and Jova Bagioli Reyes’ homelands have a rich history as places where people come together to fight injustice and demand change. MLF and Manchester City of Literature have co-commissioned Jova to create new work inspired by protest and resistance. Jova will perform their new commission in English and Spanish followed by Anjum and Ali performing their translations of the poem in their mother tongues of Urdu and Arabic.
