collective this week I took part in a poetry & dance workshop at the Southbank and in a small group of creative women we wrote this poem collectively: And I allow myself to flow still judging my words. Although there’s no wrong they’re still so separate – and I don’t know why She tried to think of the colour of milk, safe and untouched Just because… I don’t know: the pleasure to follow and to […]

Poplar Poplar sounds a bit like “popular” and yet that’s probably one thing that it is not – with most Londoners at least.

marathon  I’m just coming from a performance extravaganza at Siobhan Davies Studios: Fevered Sleep did an 8-hour performance marathon of “Stilled”, a 5D meditation that combined dance, music, photography, light and stillness. I felt beautifully serene at the end of 2 hour watching and almost upset that it was over. The exhibition is still on until 1st April, and a podcast available online here. When I left Siobhan Davies Studios I was given my photo […]
