Having been hailed by Hunger Magazine as “one of the brightest new stars on the international poetry scene”, poet Scarlett Sabet has teamed up with legendary musician Jimmy Page to produce Catalyst, a radical sonic re-interpretation of work drawn from Sabet’s previous four collections, released digitally and on special edition vinyl last year (Oct 2019).
Join Scarlett and Jimmy at Libreria where they’ll be discussing collaboration, the challenge of working across art forms, and the creative dynamic between artist and producer.
“What strikes me about Scarlett’s work is that it’s very cutting edge and it’s making poetry interesting again. I love both the intensity and the spiritual aspect she conveys” – Van Morrison
“Scarlett Sabet’s poetry is mystical and dreamlike, while also grounded in the gritty realities of our world – in the struggles women, in friendship, in love that lingers and love that’s lost, in the dissolution of childhood and in the tragic consequences of war. If you haven’t seen Scarlett Sabet perform, seek her out as soon as you can, and be captivated by her words and presence.” – Sylvia Whitman, Shakespeare & Company
