IAIN ROBINSON (article first published : 2005-06-9)

Durban poet Iain Robinson – aka Ewok of the hip-hop band Illuminating Shadows – is to be an invited guest of the 36th Poetry International Festival in Rotterdam next week.

Iain – last seen in Durban and Pietermaritzburg in the dance work Acts of Love under a Southern Moon - is one of only eight poets from all over the world who will take part in the second World Slampionship which forms part of the Festival.

The largest festival of its kind in Europe, the Rotterdam event draws poets from all over the world for the week-long event which is attended by publishers, representatives of publications and performance platforms and translators. The festival theme this year is the relationship between poetry and theatre.

“This makes it very special for me, as an actor as well as a poet”, says Iain, who graduated last year from the UKZN as a speech and drama major.

Iain has written new work in preparation for the Festival, as well as “shining up” existing pieces. He has been performing in Durban recently with his Kenyan cousin, Miles Macdonald – who performs rap poetry in Swahili and English.

More information from Lylie Musgrave on 031 261 5867 or 073 297 0973 or Iain Robinson on 084 843 0055.
