There are those who think that the number thirteen is unlucky, but it was a very lucky number for our meeting this month. We began with a debrief of our Celebrating Sanctuary performance, moved on to our annual outing to Ledbury Poetry Festival and ended with plans and preparation for our performance at the Book Festival on October 10th at the Ikon Gallery. We’re still awaiting confirmation of time. Please check back soon for updates.
In light of the fact that the space in the Ikon does not have a stage Sue took those sharing work through an exercise of connecting with their pieces and using the space in a more creative way. Vlad kicked off with a blistering poem which created an electric atmosphere. A wide range of contributions followed. From a call and response song/poem to an erotic ode heightened energy. We ended with a crescendo of applause as the last person enthralled us with a witty and moving piece. If the performance in October is anything like this it will be a treat for both performers and the audience.
