Poetry set at El Geebee Tea Queue Festival

I’m performing at the El Geebee Tea Queue Festival at Junkyard Dogs on Saturday 21 – Sunday 22 April.

I’ll be sharing a poetry set at 4.45pm on the Sunday. There’s a really fabulous lineup of music, poetry, comedy and more by local artists – in one of my favourite Brighton venues!

More details on Eventbrite or Facebook.

Individual Medley at Swindon Fringe

I had a super time at Swindon Fringe Festival on Saturday, sharing Individual Medley with a warm and responsive audience in the spacious Phoenix Theatre at New College.

Here’s a nice review of the show from the Swindon Advertiser, and below are some comments from the audience.

Poetry and Movement in Mumbai

In March I spent just over a week in Mumbai, to teach some creative movement workshops with my friends from Movement in Worship and The Arts Collective Mumbai.

It was great to explore the city, eat good food and meet some inspiring people.

Here’s a video from the kid’s workshop we did, exhausting but lots of fun!

 

I wrote a poem while I was there too.  Spirituality has always been a big part of my writing journey. Even when I have questions and doubts (which is often), picking up a pen or moving my body helps me feel more connected and more hopeful.

Individual Medley @ Hove Grown & Swinge

So I’m swimming back on stage this year, first of all in Brighton as part of the (Brighton and) Hove Grown Festival, on 24 March 7.30pm at the Maydays’ Studio.

Then secondly at Swindon Fringe (also known as Swinge) on Saturday 7 April 2.30pm at Phoenix Theatre. There I’ll be followed by BearDog’s show Sealfie which looks beautiful.

I’ve spent some time tightening up the show with the lovely Lauren Gauge recently which was fun. And continuing to explore ideas, so I’m excited to see where it all goes this year!

“Individual Medley” returns to Brighton

I teamed up with Share Your Story and Tick Tock Bridget to present an evening of “Stories on the Move” – and bring my solo show back to Brighton. It was great to perform to friends who’d missed seeing at Brighton Fringe, to share it in a different (bigger) space, and notice how it’s developed and changed in the last few months.

Tick Tock Bridget performed their dance piece, “Rejoining Jane”, which brought laughter, funky moves and whimsical music to the scene, and we shared a Q&A session afterwards about creative process. A lovely night and hopefully the start of more collaborations!
