A BRIDGE BY A CLIFF

 

 

I’ve collaborated with Apsis Lab on an interdisciplinary performance premiering at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Written by Joana Raio,¬†A Bridge by a Cliff¬†uses film, music, poetry and dance to create a multi-sensory portrayal of the bitter-sweetness of lost love. The show runs from Monday 21st to Sunday 27th August. Tickets available here.

CAMARADEFEST II

Fantastic day at Camaradefest II last weekend. 100 poets in 50 pairs read new collaborations over the course of one day at Rich Mix in Shoreditch, London. Here’s mine and Sarah Dawson‘s. It was incredibly inspiring & humbling to be part of this unique event celebrating the breadth of contemporary [experimental] poetry in the uk. Watch the rest of the videos here.

MAINTENANT!

Here’s a collaborative group poem written with my fellow students at the Poetry School. SJ Fowler kindly stood in for me because I couldn’t be at the performance. As you can see, it went swimmingly – even without aquatic mammals.
