Throwing Voices: Rody Gorman, Bigg Taj & Tayi Tibble
Fri 16 Aug 18:00 - 19:30
A Gaelic-Maori Musical Conversation
Throwing Voices is a unique collaborative project showing how local language, culture and tradition can resonate across linguistic divides. Using selected objects and words, Ireland-born Scottish Gaelic language poet Rody Gorman and New Zealand (Te Whānau ā Apanui/Ngāti Porou) writer Tayi Tibble share their experiences in a special event featuring music, verse and discussion. The authors have worked with leading Scottish Indian beatbox artist Bigg Taj to create a boundary-crossing performance exploring the similarities and differences between Gaelic and Maori cultures.
