Martin Figura is a poet and photographer. His latest one-man show, Doctor Zeeman’s Catastrophe Machine, is a masterclass in spoken word. It was shortlisted for the 2018 Saboteur Awards and is currently touring the UK to 5-star reviews. This show was a highlight of last year’s Ledbury Festival. Martin’s poetry includes the collection, Whistle, which was nominated for the Ted Hughes Award and won the Saboteur 2013 Best Spoken Word Show Award. Patience Agbabi says ‘His subject matter is so challenging it makes the audience gasp. In spite of this, he engages the listener with warmth and humour.’ Martin lives in Norwich, is married toHelen Ivory, is chair of Café Writers and a trustee of Norwich Arts Centre.
Catastrophe Machine is a tour de force – no-one emerges unaffected.
