Jacob Polley - winner of the 2016 TS Eliot prize for poetry - is regarded as one of the leading talents of the new generation of British poets.
Inspired by his award-winning collection Jackself, and with the poet himself reading his work live, Lamanby takes the audience on a multi-media journey through an imagined childhood house which becomes the site of an alternative personal history.
With remarkable music and soundscapes created by John Alder, the performance resonates with voices, film, monsters and music, telling a story charged with strangeness and poetry.
'Lamanby is poetry and performance at its best – a celebration of various art forms, and their power to evoke the memories and emotions which make us human.' – Amy Strong, Durham Book Festival
