Sound Machine: Raymond Antrobus

  • Te Auaha, Cinema 65 Dixon Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

Winner of the 2018 Geoffrey Dearmer Prize for his poem ‘Sound Machine’, Raymond Antrobus is a poet powerhouse of both the spoken and written persuasion. A fellowship recipient, Slam winner and Londoner, Raymond’s perspective cuts a fresh path through modern poetry, education and social commentary. Of his latest book The Perseverance Kaveh Akbar says ‘it’s magic, the way this poet is able to bring together so much—deafness, race, masculinity, a mother’s dementia, a father’s demise—with such dexterity.’  Raymond speaks with Pip Adam.
