Loud poems for a very obliging audience


Sunday 27th November

For your amusement, LGBTIQ+ activist, multidisciplinary writer and general troublemaker Ng Yi-Sheng performs the angriest, queerest works from the last two decades of his poetic oeuvre, recently compiled in the collection Loud Poems for a Very Obliging Audience (unless his publishers have pushed back the launch date yet again, KNN).

Ng Yi-Sheng is a poet, playwright, fiction writer, journalist and LGBT activist. He won the Singapore Literature Prize 2008 for his debut poetry collection “last boy”, and has also authored the non-fiction book “SQ21: Singapore Queers in the 21st Century” and the film novelisation “Eating Air”. He also served as co-editor for “GASPP: a Gay Anthology of Singapore Poetry and Prose”, “Eastern Heathens: An Anthology of Subverted Asian Folklore” and “Heat”. Recently, he released a compilation of his spoken word works, written over two decades, titled “Loud Poems for a Very Obliging Audience”.
