Summary

Candy-Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars is a document of transformations: the possibilities that walk the fine line between the real and the surreal, the mundane and the extraordinary. And through it all there is music - both references to music and musicians and a music of language that Inua Ellams seems to be exploring, testing, riffing on.

Candy-Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars Summary

Candy-Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars by Inua Ellams

Candy-Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars is a document of transformations: the possibilities that walk the fine line between the real and the surreal, the mundane and the extraordinary. Contemporary culture clashes with mythology as Bruce Lee angles for space alongside Prometheus on pages where twin towers burn and yellow hues bleed into London sunsets. Yet is is also a text of conversations: the commerce of possibilities, the transformations that memory can inflict on the present, the clear light that today can cast on yesterdays. And through it all there is music - both references to music and musicians and a music of language that Inua Ellams seems to be exploring, testing, riffing on.

About Inua Ellams

Born in Nigeria in 1984, Inua Ellams moved to London aged 11 and started performing in cafes in 2003. He has since built a reputation for himself as a poet, performer, playwright, graphic artist and designer. His first book, the best-selling poetry pamphlet, Thirteen Fairy Negro Tales (2005) led to work in venues which include Queen Elizabeth Hall, Tate Britain, Theatre Royal Stratford and Glastonbury Festival and his debut play, The 14th Tale (2009), a partly autobiographical coming-of-age monodrama, won a Fringe First Award at Edinburgh Festival, toured, and ran at the National Theatre in 2010. His second play, Untitled (2010), toured in Autumn 2010. Candy-Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars is his second pamphlet.
