Eric Ngalle Charles | Place, Memory, and Language through Stories, and the Meaning of Home

Join Eric Ngalle Charles, a Cameroon-born Wales based writer, poet, and playwright. Arriving in Wales as a near-penniless migrant, after being trafficked to Russia by a criminal gang, he has remade his life as a poet/writer, and dazzling performer of his own work. His first play, My Mouth Brought Me Here, was showcased at Encampment in London Southbank. It is a play based around his poetry and an Old West African Proverb which explores the themes of migration, language, freedom of expression and dictatorship. His memoir I, Eric Ngalle was published by Parthian in 2020 and his poetry collection Homelands will be published by Seren in April. This event is part of the Amdani Fachynlleth festival. Tickets: £5. For further information and to book visit: www.eventbrite.co.uk
