Words into Movement – Inspired by Tagore at Birmingham Book Festival

Cannon Hill Park, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B12 9QH

South Asian classical and contemporary dance performances with readings of selected poems/stories.

Dancers will take their inspiration from a selection of stories and poetry in the book Inspired by Tagore, published by sampad in partnership with British Council India, further to a hugely successful international writing competition that attracted entries from across the UK and around the globe.

Piali Ray, director of sampad says: ‘This exciting competition connected us with around 1,500 writers from 37 countries and we were blown away by the quality, passion and enthusiasm reflected in their entries. Sampad continually strives to profile creative people and these publications are a great way of bringing talented writers to public attention and reinforcing the work that sampad delivers internationally to develop intercultural dialogues across different communities.’

Selected authors will deliver readings of their winning entries, and we are delighted to announce that they will also be joined by the overall winner of the competition.

The event takes place in the Foyle Studio at mac birmingham.
