The Ginger Light is the unique collaboration between the acclaimed poet and author Jeremy Reed and the musician and producer Itchy Ear. Ginger Light is an attempt to blur the boundaries that exist between spoken word, music, sound design and song. Together they create a performance dynamic unparalleled in British poetry.
Jeremy Reed was acclaimed by JG Ballard as ‘the most gifted poet working today’; his poetry, fiction and performances are singularly inimitable in their opposition to grey mainstream poetry. Jeremy has published over 40 books of poetry, fiction and non-fiction, winning prestigious literary prizes like the Somerset Maugham Award. On coming to live in London in the 1980s his first patron was the artist Francis Bacon. Bjork has called his work ‘the most beautiful, outrageously brilliant poetry in the world.’
For this evening Jeremy has devised a special set focusing on Soho and Blake whom ‘I still feel walking down Broadwick Street, busy and radiating light’.
