Back to All Events


Diisonance is a collaboration, part of a jigsaw, the genesis of which is shared experiences; artist Steve Ryan and poet paul hawkins met in the early nineties squatting in Claremont Road, East London at the height of anti-road protests, poll-tax riots and dissent.

Diisonance (to be published by Hesterglock Press 2017) gathers new collaborative experimental text created for performance during diisonance events in Sheffield in June 2017. It features Dan Eltringham and Seni Seneviratne, Rowan Evans and Leila Barrera, Miggy Angel and Sarer Scotthorne, Linda Kemp and Roy McFarlane, paul hawkins and Emteaz Hussain, new work from the diissonance workshop participants and full colour images of Steve and Paul’s artwork as seen in the Gallery Cafe September exhibition.

Expect performances of fierce words and dissonant stories from these innovative writers and poets.

The evening takes place between 7pm and 9pm and entry is on a 'pay by donation' basis.
