Sea and surf poetry
Catch the rhythmic waves of spoken word, blending the beauty of surfing and the power of poetry.A spoken word performance filled with captivating words, rhythmic beats, and the spirit of the ocean. This all-women poetry collective who brought Morvoren: The Poetry of Sea Swimming to the 2022 September Festival, are back with Mordardh, which is Cornish for breaking wave.
Their new project, supported by Arts Council England, involved talking to surfers across Cornwall, asking why do people surf? Whether you’re a seasoned surfer, sea swimmer or simply someone who appreciates the power of words, this event is for you.
Let the talented poets transport you to the waves, where adrenaline meets tranquility, and where surf culture intertwines with the beauty of nature. Find out why half of Cornwall gets on a wetsuit and heads down the beach when the surf’s up (yes, the other half will be sea swimming!).
Experience the magic of surf and sea poetry with poets from the collective including Ella Walsworth-Bell, Kerry Vincent, Kate Barden and Abigail Ottley
