A most beautiful afternoon, a most beautiful word thought slice splice kind of place. All under the gaze of A Lady From the Orient.
Saturday’s gig was a blast!
Kate Jacobsen made the room smile with her honeyed vocals and country hooks; Thomas Day blew things up with a live installation that unpicked the seams of sexuality and war; and the 26 open mic readers whispered, roared and enchanted. Call-Back-Poet for the month was SpeedPoets first-timer, Simon Kindt, with a poem for Dorothy Porter that sent a shiver through the entire room.
I will be posting a feature on Simon later in the week, but for now, here’s a few pics from the day, thanks to the lovely Chloe Callistemon.
