Eric Ngalle Charles is a poet, dramatist and novelist. He runs Black Entertainment Wales, an Arts organisation that provides a platform for artists in the BMEs communities to showcase their work.

His first play, My Mouth Brought Me Here, was showcased at Encampment in London Southbank on the 4th of August 2016 (pictures below). It is a play based around my poetry and an Old West African Proverb and it explores the themes of migration, language, freedom of expression and dictatorship. “In some societies silent is Gold”, “In some societies talking is silver”, “In some societies one can survive a fall from a twenty story building and survive, while answering a simple Yes or No question can be tantamount to decapitation”.
