The Printed Room stages two simultaneous solo presentations, "Formidable Sparkles" by Bhanu Kapil, and "Selected Annahs" by Khairani Barokka. Conceptualized separately, the projects share a space, and present parallel interpretations of the same theme: the interwoven, and intimately political, relationship between poetry and performance.

With a performance by Khairani Barokka on Thursday, 14 June, at 6.30pm. Attendance for this performance is limited. Please register here to attend:
