GemArts is thrilled to be launching Masala Festival 2021! Working in partnership with Borneo Bengkel, an arts platform based in Sarawak, East Malaysia, we present an international collaboration between South East Asian poets and invited guests from the North of England. 

The performance is the culmination of a gathering between poets from Borneo and Northern England, during which performers will explore identity, marginalisation, dualism and otherness.

The spoken word event is in collaboration with Wordsmiths of Kuching and will be hosted in both countries and across two locations, and broadcast digitally, reaching across borders and bringing an international audience together. 

Bor(neo): North + East aims to build bridges between creatives from North East England and Borneo Island and is supported by British Council's Connections Through Culture award.
In partnership with GemArts, Borneo Bengkal and Alphabetti Theatre
