Pete Strong is a writer and artist from the depths of Bandit Country, Ulster. Born in the early 1980s, and now based on the south coast of England, his work explores landscape, memory, and the gaps between.
He writes poetry and prose, and creates theatrical performances and installations using film, spoken word, audio recordings and found sound to excavate stories from his own life and the world around him.
He makes work for people who love unflinching honesty shared in an original and funny way. Combining beauty with precision, his empathetic style invites audiences to be carried away in seeing life anew so we might better understand ourselves.
Pete has been performing for over 15 years, in Brighton, Edinburgh and London, including the Hammer & Tongue Spoken Word National Final at The Royal Albert Hall. His work has been shortlisted for the Squawker New Comedy Award, the Bridport Poetry Prize, and was a runner up in the Brighton and Hove Arts Council Sussex Poetry Competition.
He is currently working on his first poetry pamphlet and debut novel. He also performs stand up comedy.
