Carmen Marcus: The Book of Godless Verse

In 2015 Carmen Marcus was named a BBC Radio 3 Verb New Voice for her project The Book of Godless Verse. As a lapsed Catholic, Carmen wanted to find a way to witness the everyday moments of human experience, the daily hurts and triumphs, that prayer just didn’t fit.

In this special event, she will be performing her Radio 3 commissioned work, Breaking Up with Jesus, as well as a brand new performance commissioned by Durham Book Festival, A Stranger’s Case, about shared experiences of leaving behind or fleeing home.

For this work Carmen will be reaching out to you and others through social media to share your
own experiences of leaving. Please follow www.facebook.com/BookofGodlessVerse

The Book of Godless Verse is supported by Arts Council England
