The Dead Sea Poems Commission

We are very pleased to announce that One Day, After School have been commissioned to write and perform a soundtrack to Simon Armitage’s The Dead Sea Poems on behalf of Wakefield Literature Festival.

The live show will take place on September 30th at Mechanics Theatre. It will feature up to an hour of original, newly created material and feature guest poets / speakers / performers. For those who don’t know Simon Armitage, he is a massively renowned and respected poet, winner of many awards and became the Millennium poet in 1999. It’s a big deal for a band like us to be taking this on.

Creating this show has been an exciting and intriguing journey and we hope you can join us for the single performance of this work.

Here is an interview with Backseat Mafia about the project. More information and ticket details here.

And here’s our first rehearsal:
