Love The Sinner

7th August 2022 - 7th August 2022

Join us for an online performance with Imogen Stirling. Swooping from the mundane to the immense, Stirling’s long-form poetry weaves narratives of human experience. A loose alliance of extraordinary and unextraordinary characters struggle to comprehend their identities in a world bladed with criticism and obsessed with self-betterment. This story sees ancient roots clasp hands with modern compassion to explore human frailty, love and resilience. Mirror and rallying cry both, Love The Sinner reflects on the meaning of being human today Imogen Stirling is a Glasgow-based artist. She is a performance poet, theatre-maker, musician, writer and facilitator.
