The world in a poem, a poem in the world – in their poems, poets Meimei Bastos and Elis Rita turn their eyes to the large and small transformations they see in the world. In this poetry conversation, they will reflect on these changes and the ways they are changed by their own writing, reflecting on the processes and inputs that precede their artistic work, and their performances onstage. Who (or what) inspires their wok? What do their poems react to? What reactions do they hope their poems might inspire, what ripple effects might they generate? Together they will consider their work’s poetic backdrop – and the horizons of future possibilities they look to.
