Modern Love

Leading poets on the international arts and guest DJs and musicians present their perspectives on love and modern relationships in a spoken word tour, produced by arts promotion agency rennaisance one.

As a group they represent the cutting-edge talent and diversity of the London scene. Taking cues from a myriad of sources - pop culture, visuals, advertising and performance art among others - has given the artists a distinctive edge and accessibility. Many cross the genres of literature, music, live arts and performance and have over the years built up followings world-wide. Exploring themes of familial love, passion, universal love, revenge, jealousy and heartbreak amongst others, the artists were commissioned by renaissance one to write new work for the tour. This is featured in the book modern love, which contains fiction, poetry and commentary on love and relationships in the 21st century (renaissance one, 2001).
