Apples and Snakes at Tate: Keisha Thompson

Join poet Keisha Thompson in a reading from Lunar, an exploration of mental illness, love and forgiveness

Step into a world that uses the language of mathematics, logic and science to explore the Black British experience, masculinity and mental health. Lunar presents a series of poems alongside a play script. These themes are pushed through the lens of Keisha’s relationship with her dad, a recluse who has mainly communicated with Keisha through letters, symbols and books.

Keisha will read from her work, followed by a Q & A and book signing.


Keisha Thompson is currently touring her award-winning solo show Man on the Moon. She works at Contact in Manchester as the Young People’s Producer managing Contact Young Company.
