We’re excited to welcome two of these islands’ finest queer poets to the upstairs stage of the Sunflower for an intimate Sunday evening of performance, with special guest poets curated by Red Pill.
Liverpudlian Gerry Potter has performed at Outburst many times and there’s a reason we keep asking him back. The artist formerly known as Chole Poems is one of our most passionate and mesmerising performance poets, with a growing bibliography of work with Flapjack Press, including Planet Young (2009), Fifty (2012) and, most recently, The Story Chair (2016), a book about his love affair with Ireland.
Catherine (Cat)Brogan is a witty, smart, moving and hightly entertaining performance poet who has appeared on The Today Programme, at Edinburgh Fringe, Cheltenham and Canterbury Literary Festivals, Latitude and the Radio 4 UK Slam. Originally from N.Ireland, Cat is a BBC Edinburgh Fringe Poetry Slam winner and a spoken word educator, most recently teaching and performing in Kuala Lumpar and Malaysia.
