Phillippa Yaa de Villiers

@ Sunday Times Books LIVE


Heritage Month, Jozi House of Poetry explores the link between language and identity. As part of the It’s so Gay festival, we will welcome contributions to the discussion, as well as open mic poems in IsiNgqumo or Gayle (or any official or unofficial South African languages).

Featuring poets Mthunzikazi Mbungwana, Pitika Ntuli and Nicholas Richard Holmes Welch in discussion with Vangi Gantsho and Phillippa Yaa de Villiers. After a 15 minute set from each poet, we open the discussion and explore the theme in depth, referring to the writer’s intentions, habits and cultural and literal references.

The session takes place on 29 September at POP Art Theatre in the Maboneng Precinct on Fox Street, in the building known as Main Street Life. It starts at 2pm and closes at 5. Tickets are R50 at the door. Bring your poem for the open mic!
