Eric Ngalle Charles is a writer, poet, and playwright, originally from Cameroon and now settled in Wales. In the performance Eric will share stories of his experiences as a refugee and of human trafficking, and an exploration of the concept of ‘hiraeth’; feelings of loss of home, family, friends, and identity, and the resilience these trigger. The workshop will focus on ”Linguistic hybridity in post-colonial dialogue”, applying and using Russian, French, Bakweri, and pidgin English, to explore how these languages are developing and taking literature to different audiences.
