Providing fresh perspectives on visual art, Festival Detours is a series of intimate live performances in Edinburgh’s leading galleries by stars from the worlds of music, comedy, theatre, poetry and prose. Each year we invite performers to respond in their own particular way to their favourite artworks featured in the Edinburgh Art Festival programme.
Born in Nigeria, Inua Ellams lives and works from London as a poet, playwright, performer, graphic artist and designer. Inspired by the exhibition The Black Spot, in which Tim Rollins & K.O.S. mix pop culture with works of classic literature, Inua responds with a beautiful short story about love in the time of urban dystopia.
