Uppsala, Sweden, 2008

In September 2006, Ewok was invited to assemble a group with whom he would travel and perform as part of the Uppsala International Poetry Festival in Uppsala, Sweden. Along with him went Libby Allen, Miles Pygmy Macdonald and Nathan KingB Redpath. The group spent two weeks in Sweden, travelling and performing in theatres, schools and clubs. As part of the festival’s programme, they teamed with four Swedish writers and musicians, who would then accompany them back to Durban, South Africa for a similar tour on SA soil and participation in the Centre For Creative Arts’ Poetry Africa Festival.

So, it seemed the Swedes became fans, extending invitation to Ewok and Libby for a return tour in October 2008, where Ewok would perform Spitfire as one of the main acts on the Regina Teatern Stage. As part of the trip, the pair also conducted Poetry off the Page, performance and self-expression workshops ,with school pupils in Uppsala.
