As part of the Talking Doorsteps project, the Roundhouse hosted spoken word poetry workshops in different countries with professional UK poets. The workshops culminated in films of poetry pieces on the theme of ‘Home’.

In the last week of May 2015, the Roundhouse brought together international poets to London during its annual ‘The Last Word’ poetry festival.

During the week-long adventures of collaborative writing, workshops, performances and filming, the BB World Service caught up with a few of the international poets for the Weekend radio show, aired on Saturday, May 30 2015.

Poets featured on the show are: Sara Sibai (Beirut), Xabiso Zanabo Vili (Johannesburg), and Adrain Van Wyk (Cape Town).

Sara Sibai and Omar Radwan Interview on B Beirut – LBCI
January 31, 2013

A couple of days after a poetry reading a fellow poet, Omar Radwan (check out his blog) and I had organized, we got invited for an interview on T.V. on a talk show that scans different cultural and artistic events in town.

The word ‘scans’ is very important here. They had a million questions prepared for us on very different aspects of our lives, which apparently they intended to ask and get answers for in less than 10min. Needless to say, I asked them to forget about most of those questions and to be a bit more focused.

By the way, T.V. studios are incredibly impersonal places. I couldn’t wait to get out of there 🙂 …but thankful nonetheless for the recognition, of course.
