I have written a number of commissioned poems. These include ‘1001 Nights’, composed for an event at the British Film Institute that celebrated works including Pasolini’s adaptation, The Flower of One Thousand and One Nights. My poem 'Antinous' was written for the British Museum, and was inspired by the bust of Hadrian's lover on display there.
I am have been involved in a collaboration with the composer Ricky Horscraft and the Actually Gay Men's Chorus called Seven Doors of Danny. This has seen me write the lyrics to seven songs that tell the story of a queer burglar from birth to death.
There are three launch events for my new book of poems Spacecraft.
Each event will start at around 8pm and will also feature Claire Trévien launching her new collection Astéronymes.
