Details

Wakefield musicians One Day, After School present their brand new work; a soundtrack performance of Simon Armitage's seminal poetry collection 'The Dead Sea Poems'.

Combining specially composed music with guest performers and poets, the show takes lead from the collection's pre-millenial tension and Armitage's own down to earth interest in the minutiae of life.

'The Dead Sea Poems' was shortlisted for the Whitbread Poetry Prize, the Forward Prize and the T.S. Eliot Prize.

In 1999 Simon Armitage was named the Millennial Poet. One Day, After School released their debut album in 2017 and are influenced by instrumental artists such as Mogwai, Slint and Brian Eno.
