It’s Showtime!

I don’t know about you, but I’m really missing live performance. Performing at festivals and events and schools and theatres, in front of live audiences … .

To make up for not being able to perform live at present, and to remind me of the buzz of live performance, I’ve put together the showreel below. It’s made up of snippets from various (pre-COVID) performances of mine that I have footage from. I hope it perks you up a little, as it has me.

Some of you have asked for the full versions of the poems included here, so I’ve put links to the complete versions of most of the poems (along with approximate timestamps) under the video, along with links to further information about them

So until we meet again in a live performance space, here, for your delectation, is the aforementioned showreel:
