Kamal Kaan: As the Cloud Takes its Last Breath

Durham Book Festival invites you to take some time out of your busy lives and to step into the tranquil surroundings of St Chad’s Chapel. In the quiet of the chapel you will put on a pair of headphones and experience eight minutes of mindfulness. Inspired by the poem Like This by Rumi, audio drama As the Cloud Takes its Last Breath is a meditative journey to take you out of the overwhelming battle of the everyday, to encourage you to take a momentary breath. And pause…

Kamal Kaan is a Bradford-based writer and actor. He was named as a BBC Radio 3 Verb New Voice in 2015, and As the Cloud Takes its Last Breath was premiered at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead. Kamal is currently part of the Emerging Writers Group at the Bush Theatre, London, and is under commission by BBC Radio 4.
