Description The Spalding Suite de Inua Ellams:

When we were young, we worshipped stars, gleaming long-limbed godsframed in the act of impossible flight. For a time we tried to follow, to carve out our own piece of sky with a butter-smooth arc of an arm and a Spalding ball glued to the fingertips...Seen from a British perspective, The Spalding Suite gets to the heart and soul of the gravity-defying game and delves into the hopes and dreams of those who play it. From the fleeting high of the score and the robust camaraderie of the team, to the poignant lows of a body too worn to play the game. Inua Ellams was born in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria in 1984. He works as an internationally touring poet, playwright and performer. He has seven published books including Thirteen Fairy Negro Tales (Poetry, Flipped Eye: 2005), The 14th Tale (Play, Flipped Eye: 2009) - which was commissioned by the Battersea Arts Centre and awarded a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival, before a sold-out run at The National Theatre in London, England. His third theatre piece, Black T-Shirt Collection (Play, Oberon: 2012) also completed a sold-out run at the National Theatre in 2012. His poems have been published in magazines and anthologies including: Generation Txt (Penned in the Margins: 2006), City State (Penned in the Margins: 2009), The Salt Book of Younger Poets (Salt: 2011), The Shuffle Anthology (Shuffle: 2011), Chorus (MTV Books: 2012). Candy Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars (Flipped Eye: 2011) is his second pamphlet of poetry and he is currently working on #Afterhours, his third pamphlet. Working also as a graphic designer and visual artist, Inua's work is imbibed with plentiful imagery - the starting point of his poems, and further, he describes the one-man shows he writes and performs as failed 'poems'. Inua Ellams acknowledges that as biographies go, this is essentially a gathered list of achievements that say nothing about his personality, thus, promises he is a nice guy. 'Trust me...', he says, '... I'm Nigerian'.
