Daljit Nagra tours his Retold Ramayana nationwide

Next Generation Poet 2014, Daljit Nagra, is three dates in to a national tour of his 2013 T S Eliot Prize-shortlisted collection, a retelling of The Ramayana. Organised by Jaybird Live Literature, The Retold Ramayana event brings the book to life with projections, colour and confetti, and has already wowed audiences in Budleigh, Exeter and Durham.


It’s rumbustious storytelling, beautiful language and an introduction to a revered cultural artefact all rolled up together and we recommend everyone checking it out in venues close to them in the coming weeks. The tour visits Manchester, Bridport, Nottingham and London in the next fortnight, with further dates planned.
