A girl glides down Galaxy Walk to her grandmother’s home. The impact of patriarchy is unravelled. The unforgivable negligence of Grenfell and unsafe housing in Britain is exposed.
In these poems that are at once raw and vulnerable, Shareefa Energy explores hauntings of love, loss, and history as a working-class Indian woman raised in the diaspora. With a voice fortified and perceptive, these writings navigate the blunt cruelties of our existence, whilst refusing to forget how to marvel at the wonders on earth. Galaxy Walk restores our faith in what it means to be alive and human.
Expect live performances from Shareefa Energy alongside a live musician, Amrit Kaur Lohia and special guests.
The show will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
