The Details...

Join writer, performer and producer - Malaika Kegode for a masterclass at the intersection of performance styles. 

An autobiographical gig-theatre show created with prog-rock band Jakabol, Outlier was the first piece of new writing to appear on Bristol Old Vic’s main stage in 2021. 

In addition to her own writing, Malaika is a poetry mentor and workshop leader. She is the founder and lead producer of Milk Poetry, an organisation that produces innovative spoken word events in a supportive environment. Outside of poetry, she is passionate about writing on the themes of cinema, culture and race.

Malaika also studies film and has worked as a programme selector for Encounters Film Festival and Tallinn Black Nights. Her debut short poetry-film Wide as the Sea, an exploration of millennial Queer culture, was made over the 2021 lockdown on a £10 budget. It has been shown at various online events, including Queer Vision’s Sofa Club. She is excited to continue exploring genre, form and the power of the written word made visual.
