The God of Sugar

Monday 28th July, 2014

7 – 9 pm

Absent Voices is a group of Scottish artists who have come together to explore and preserve in words, pictures, song and sound, the legacy of Greenock’s once mighty sugar industry. Artist Alastair Cook presents work commissioned by Absent Voices from his Filmpoem project in collaboration with award-winning poet Vicki Feaver, who reads and discusses the inspirations for her poem about sugar and empire, ‘The God of Sugar.’ Composer Luca Nasciuti will accompany Vicki live and the evening will be rounded off with an acoustic set by Absent Voices singer-songwriter Kevin McDermott.
