Q1) What is your connection with Poetry&Words?
I have performed for the last two years. I performed in 2010 and was honoured to go just before John Hegley’s set, and then again in 2012 I had the pleasure of compering with Dreadlock Alien.
Engaging, entertaining, storytelling Q3) How would you describe Glastonbury Festival to someone who’s never been there?
It’s a world unto itself, with as much art, music, and other creative happenings as you can imagine, 24 hours a day, 3 days in a row, for thousands of people. Its a community that builds itself for this period, only to disappear right after.
Ed. The festival runs from Wednesday to Sunday now, so you get even more days of festivities for your money!
Q4) Can you name two other poets who you admire?
E. E. Cummings and Lemn Sissay
Reflection, frustration, the pace of cities, social mishaps, overheard conversations, otherness, desire Q6) Where is the most unusual place you’ve performed your work?
Either a) a former foundry in northern Germany (now a gallery) or b) a former tax office in Berlin (now an art space). Q7) What are you working on at the moment?
My masters in performance making at Goldsmiths, and a new solo show ‘The Anti-Social Network’ that I will be taking to the fringe this summer. Q8) What’s the closest rhyme for ‘orange’ you can find?
Storage Q9) Can we have a poem please?
